LABELS: Eloquence
WORKS: Songs of Mourning: Consort Music
PERFORMER: Martyn Hill (tenor); The Consort of Musicke/Anthony Rooley
CATALOGUE NO: 480 2298

This disc argues poorly for Coprario’s talents. Hill beguiles in softer passages, but his expression becomes wooden above mezzo forte. The Consort of Musicke’s clipped articulation chops up lines that should intertwine. Berta Joncus
