CD 1:
Come, let us leave the town
Scene of the Drunken Poet
Come all ye songsters
Symphony in Imitation of Birds
May the God of Wit inspire
Symphony in Imitation of Echo
Now join your warbling voices all
Sing while we trip it
See, even Night herself is here
I am come to lock all fast
One charming night
Hush, no more
Dance for the Followers of Night
If love’s a sweet passion
Symphony while the Swans come Forward
Dance for the Fairies
Dance for the Green Man
Ye gentle spirits of the air
Now the maidsand the men are making of hay
Dance for the Haymakers
When I have often hears young maids complaining
A thousand, thousand ways

CD 2:
Now the night is chas’d away
Let the fifes and the clarions
Symphony for the Entry of Phoebus
When a cruel long winter
Hail! Great parent of us all
Thus the ever grateful Spring
Here’s the Summer
See my many colour’d fields
Next, Winter comes slowly
Hail! Great parent of us all
O let me weep
Thrice happy lovers
Entry Dance
Thus the gloomy world
Thus happy and free
Yes, Daphne
Dance for the Monkeys
Hark how all things with one sound rejoice
Hark the echoing air a triumph sings
Sure the dull God of Marriage/Hymen appear
Prelude as Hymen Enters
See, I obey/Turn then thine eyes/My torch, indeed
They shall be as happy as they’re fair
Dance for Chinese Man & Woman - Chaconne
Purcell’s The Fairy Queen is based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a play not frequently performed in the late 17th century, nor very well regarded (“the most insipid ridiculous play that ever I saw in my life” - Samuel Pepys’ diary, 1662). Despite this, the play would go on to work well within an opera, as the characters of Pyramus and Thisbe could conjure up singing and dancing accomplices. Purcell’s masterful composition, Gabrieli’s first-class performance, and McCreesh’s superb interpretation demonstrate why their recordings are seen as some of the best in classical music today.

Gabrieli are world-renowned interpreters of great vocal and instrumental repertoire, from the Renaissance to the present day. Founded by Paul McCreesh in 1982, Gabrieli have both outgrown and remained true to their original identity: whilst the ensemble’s repertoire has expanded beyond any expectation, McCreesh’s ever-questioning spirit, expressive musicianship and a healthy degree of iconoclasm remain constant and are reflected in the ensemble’s dynamic performances. Gabrieli’s repertoire includes major works of the oratorio tradition, virtuosic a cappella programmes and mould-breaking reconstructions of music for historical events. Above all, Gabrieli aims to create thought-provoking performances which stand out from the crowd.

Recording: St Silas the Martyr, Kentish Town, London, 8-11 & 18 January 2019. Performing edition by Christopher Suckling and Paul McCreesh, based on contemporary sources.
