      Purcell: The Fairy Queen: O let me weep (7:19)

      Raquel Andueza, soprano; L’Arpeggiata / Christina Pluhar

      After the heat of ‘Mediterraneo,’ released in 2013, Christina Pluhar and her ensemble L’Arpeggiata now head to the cooler climes of England with ‘Music for a While,’ an album based on the music of Henry Purcell. Purcell made frequent use of the ground bass, a repeated figure in the lower line. The ground bass provides an ideal foundation for the jazz-like improvisation that is the stock-in-trade of L’Arpeggiata, here comprising singers, plucked strings, wind instruments, keyboard and percussion.
