Alfred Deller was ’discovered’ by Michael Tippett, and with the supprt of Tippett, Walter Bergmann and others, re-introduced the countertenor voice to the current music repertoire. His influence cannot be overstated. This album is a tribute to Deller by musicians who have carried on his tradition in major contributions to music both in Britain and around the globe. Music from the late 17th century to the end of the 20th, of incredible beauty and charm.
"...The outstanding performers are ideally suited to the music, the recorded sound is extremely clear, and the recorded sound is extremely clear, and the musicians blend perfectly. I think that Mark Deller and the rest of Alfred’s family will be very pleased to hear this imaginative CD, and I warmly recommend it."
