Rediscovered gems from the 18th Century, these secular (or “profane”) cantatas tell of nymphs and shepherds cavorting around the fields of ancient Greece. Concert Royal are one of Britain’s longest-established “authentic performance” ensembles, playing period instruments, and this was their (and Divine Art’s) first CD.
