Taverner Consort and Players

Andrew Parrott conductor

'Of the vocal team, scoring positively above all are the lightning clean, fantastically homogeneous and tonally beautiful Taverner Choir and the outstanding, high artistry of the taker of the title role, the American Emily Van Evera. With her immaculate, ringing soprano she holds the ideal balance between stylised, beautiful singing and a finely nuanced, very moving range of expression.'

RONDO, Germany

'for all the performances available out there, the listener could not do better than this vividly dramatic reading... and as Dido, Emily Van Evera is the standout. Her death scene is a marvel of... expiring passion.'

Newark Star Ledger'
