Purcell's Dido's Lament

I have long been a fan of Purcell's delightful little opera Dido and Aeneas: in fact since I sang the role of The Sailor as a teenager.

My beloved sent me this link to a BBC Radio4 programme on Dido's Lament, where I discovered this contemporary rendition by Alison Moyet. It is gorgeous.

It seems so appropriate following Steph's funeral too.
