Emma Kirkby soprano (1-5, 8, 10-16) London Baroque Charles Medlam direction. When English soprano Emma Kirkby began her professional career in the mid-'70s, period performance practice was just beginning to make its way into the realm of vocal music. Kirkby, mentored by Jessica Cash, became a pioneer of period practice for Renaissance and Baroque vocal soloists. She studied classical literature at Oxford and took vocal lessons, but did not plan on becoming a singer. She joined the Taverner Choir in 1971, and a couple of years later, she began a long-lasting collaboration with the Consort.

Bitrate (quality): 192256320. Excelente versión de estas obras de Monteclair, con la muy buena voz de Emma Kirkby. La realización del bajo continuo por parte del clave es muy buena, pero una tiorba hubiera enfatizado todavía más el bajo continuo.

Dame Carolyn Emma Kirkby, DBE (born 26 February 1949) is an English soprano and one of the world's most renowned early music specialists. She has sung on over 100 recordings.

Emma Kirkby always has been an excellent Handel singer, from her two 1985 recordings-Italian Cantatas with Christopher Hogwood and the Academy of Ancient Music (L'Oiseau Lyre) and German Arias with Charles Medlam and the London Baroque (EMI)-and 1987's Aci, Galatea e Polifemo, again with the London Baroque (Harmonia Mundi) to this new, exemplary program of Latin motets. Kirkby, now in her early 50s, retains a remarkably youthful sound, exhibiting all of her admired agility and intonational accuracy, but with more richness in the lower register than in her younger days
