Handel’s Finest Arias for Base Voice Vol 2
With Christopher Purves, one of Britain’s best baritones 
We are thrilled our latest recording is yet another chart topper, entering the charts at No. 3.  “The voice of Christopher Purves is akin to a force of nature, its range, scale and sheer magnificence verging on the incredible. And July’s Record of the Month offers the perfect opportunity to experience this awe-inspiring instrument in full flow with a second volume of Handel’s Finest Arias for Base Voice. Jonathan Cohen and Arcangelo accompany with all their customary distinction.” (Hyperion)
