"Love’s Madness" is the second album featuring works of Henry Purcell with the soprano Dorothee Mields and the Lautten Compagney Berlin, under the direction of Wolfgang Katschner. Following the successful "Love Songs"  album (2010), in which the sensuality of love was the focus, "Love’s Madness" is concerned with the painfulness of love’s delirium.

Musically, in so-called "mad songs" love’s delirium was expressed effectively, rich with contrasts. Whereas the roots of "mad songs" rests in the tradition of the English folk song and mad songs were already found in some of Shakespeare’s works, the actual development of this type began with Henry Purcell’s music for the stage, especially his ballad "Bess of Bedlam," which today still is regarded as the prototype for the "mad song."

"... a very fine album."

Kate Bolton - BBC Music magazine - September 2012


                      *****  (Very Good)

Pierre Schwickerath - Pizzicato magazine- October 2012


"...This disc is attractive and as plaintive as can be elsewhere-and for the equally expressive and varied accompaniments and instrumentals."

Michael Ullman - Fanfare - September/October 2012
