The fairy queen by Henry Purcell( Recording )

26 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The Fairy Queen,' two artistic geniuses met. The scenario is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream; the music is by Henry Purcell, the greatest English composer of his day. The result is one of the first great operas, a dazzling display of music and emotion that has lost none of its power since its premiere in 1692. Much of the music has come to have a life beyond the opera itself: songs such as "The Plaint," "Thrice Happy Lovers" and "Hark! The Echoing air" now regularly grace the concert hall stage, a delight for singers and audiences alike. This studio recording was made with Australia's pre-eminent independent opera company, Pinchgut Opera, in 2003, and is re-released here in deluxe packaging. The cast features the finest Australian singers (Sara Macliver, Sally-Anne Russell and Paul McMahon to name but three) under the direction of Baroque specialist Antony Walker. The period instruments of the Orchestra of the Antipodes provide accompaniment of vibrant colour and immediacy." -- Jbhifi.com.au

8 editions published between 1982 and 2006 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Handel's most beloved of all oratorios was performed by fewer than forty instrumentalist and a chorus, less than thirty strong, of boy trebles and men. This is the tradition to which this performance has returned to. Members of the Academy all play instruments of the period or accurate modern copies. The soloists improvised embellishments in the arias and, in certain cases, join in the singing of the choruses, just as they would have done 240 years ago
