With her uncommonly pure voice, agile coloratura and particular sensitivity to words, Dame Emma Kirkby is one of the world’s leading sopranos in the field of early music. This release brings together five of the many album recordings she has made throughout her illustrious career, presenting a selection of Renaissance, Baroque and Classical works that demonstrate Kirkby’s innate musicality as well as passion for music-making that stresses ensemble and clarity above all else — from songs for voice and lute to arias and cantatas with string accompaniment.
