British soprano, Dame (Carolyn) Emma Kirkby, is one of the world’s most popular period-instrument sopranos.  She has sung on over a hundred recordings from sequences of Hildegard of Bingen to madrigals of the Italian and English Renaissance, cantatas and oratorios of the Baroque as well as works by Mozart, Haydn and Bach.

This 12CD collection brings together Emma Kirkby s complete L'Oiseau-Lyre recitals in a single set.

This artist’s uncommonly pure, crystalline voice, deployed with minimal vibrato, her natural declamation, agile coloratura and her sensitivity to words have been widely admired by interpreters of early Renaissance and Baroque music.
Accompanied for the most part by British lutenist,Anthony Rooley, this compendium features rarely recorded pieces by Edwards, Campion, Dowland, Morley, Ferrabosco and others.?
