"Generally acknowledged as the greatest English opera composer, Purcell wrote only one true opera, Dido and Aeneas... Possessed of an unparalleled genius for setting the English language, Purcell was also unerring in his depiction of human passions; in Dido and Aeneas he created a musical tragedy of unsurpassed pathos and concision."
