Catherine Bott presents highlights from a concert that included rarities by Purcell. Recorded in July at London's Wigmore Hall, the concert was given by the ensemble Concordia, with singers Sophie Daneman , James Gilchrist and Roderick Williams , and featured the composer's rarely heard ensemble songs, which are now referred to as "symphony songs". Most of these works were found in a manuscript in the composer's own hand, probably compiled between 1681 and 1690. Producer Les Pratt
