      Monteverdi: L’Orfeo: Prologue; Act I (20:11)

      Faye Newton, soprano (Euridice); Charles Daniels, tenor (Orfeo); Taverner Consort & Players / Andrew Parrott

      Andrew Parrott and the Taverner Consort & Players celebrate their 40th anniversary with a magnificent recording of the world’s first operatic masterpiece, Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo. Parrott has been at the center of the early music scene for over four decades, and his meticulous research results in a performance and stylistic approach that brings a fresh perspective to the opera. His scholarship, combined with the collaborative nature of the Taverners, translates into a performance brought to life by the finest singers and instrumentalists in the early music world, including tenor Charles Daniels who is Orfeo.
