Two song anthologies published shortly after the death of Henry Purcell in 1695 have inspired this highly varied program. Quoting the liner notes by lutenist Elizabeth Kenny, 'recital programs put together from the anthologies by the original purchasers would have mixed the genres without inhibition. Generally people sang what they liked and played what they liked, in any order they liked.' It was this free-and-easy approach which incited soprano Carolyn Sampson and her co-performers to combine settings with accompaniments ranging from a single lute or spinet to string quartet with continuo.
