Last quote by Christophe Rousset

There so much charm, so much appeal in this music, simply by the fact that it appropriates, musically, what was going on in Europe at the time: the Italian tradition, obviously; but also several French elements, which Purcell draws on: choruses, dances and… the intimacy. There are, of course, many English elements: that special polyphony and its delightful dissonances Purcell exploits in his orchestration… And then the intimacy of all those 'songs', one following the other.

The most recent Christophe Rousset’s quote is: “Although there are fanfares, trumpets and kettledrums I'd say that the most interesting feature in Purcell is the sentimental, emotional element. I try and move the public through them… they are of such rare a quality, and also require such subtle interpretation; I mean, you cannot 'mistreat' this music, you must 'handle it with care', and see that both the musicians and the singers are extremely careful not to spoil its fragility.”.
