The fairy queen by Henry Purcell( Recording )

30 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The Fairy Queen,' two artistic geniuses met. The scenario is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream; the music is by Henry Purcell, the greatest English composer of his day. The result is one of the first great operas, a dazzling display of music and emotion that has lost none of its power since its premiere in 1692. Much of the music has come to have a life beyond the opera itself: songs such as "The Plaint," "Thrice Happy Lovers" and "Hark! The Echoing air" now regularly grace the concert hall stage, a delight for singers and audiences alike. This studio recording was made with Australia's pre-eminent independent opera company, Pinchgut Opera, in 2003, and is re-released here in deluxe packaging. The cast features the finest Australian singers (Sara Macliver, Sally-Anne Russell and Paul McMahon to name but three) under the direction of Baroque specialist Antony Walker. The period instruments of the Orchestra of the Antipodes provide accompaniment of vibrant colour and immediacy." -- Jbhifi.com.au

Stephen Layton leads the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and his own superb choral ensemble, Polyphony, in a powerful performance of Bach's most dramatic masterpiece, the St. John Passion. Joined by a starry team of soloists, Layton directs a particularly vivid account of the work, the excitement of the narrative drama contrasting with heartbreaking moments of reflection

Taped at La Monnaie in Brussels in May 1998, this production of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo has become an operatic classic in a few short years. Choreographer/director Trisha Brown, conductor René Jacobs, and designer Roland Aeschlimann have created an ideal fusion of words, action, sight, and sound, one that never lets the viewer down and manages to tell the story in an elegant, unusual, and ultimately intensely moving manner

Carmelite Vespers by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pesar su propio Luteranismo, Handel escribió una notable música para la liturgia católica, durante su juventud en Roma. La interpretación de Parrott y sus grupos Taverner es regocijante. Handel escribió obviamente para un estelar soprano castrati, pero aquí las verdaderas "estrellas" son tres sopranos solistas (femeninas) de Parrott. Jill Feldman no estaba en su mejor voz para esta grabación: sus momentos más fuertes pueden sonar un poquito forzados, pero su cantar más suave es verdaderamente encantador. Emma Kirkby es, por supuesto, un placer en el "Laudate pueri", y Emily van Evera canta a la perfección
