Sometimes I worry that I’ve not heard of a composer before. This is one of those times. I mean … how was I not familiar with this particular wonderful work before? Yikes!

But this is Thomas Linley‘s “O bid your faithful Ariel fly”.

Julia Gooding, soprano
Paul Goodwin, oboe
Paul Nicholson/Peter Holman
The Parley of Instruments
