Linn Records is thrilled to introduce soprano Rowan Pierce in what promises to be a sensational debut recording.

The Cares of Lovers comprises songs from across Purcell’s brief career from She loves and she confesses too, one of his very first published pieces (1683), to Sweeter than roses from his final months (1695).

Although they all display the same matchless ingenuity and uncanny ability to set English words to music, a highlight includes Tell me, some pitying angel - a triumph of dramatic composition and the equal of any Italian cantata of the period.

Since winning the President’s Award at the Royal College of Music in 2017, Pierce has won acclaim for her performances at The Barbican, Royal Festival Hall and at the BBC Proms.

Her performance in Purcell’s The Fairy Queen, with the Academy of Ancient Music, won praise for her “expressive” (Financial Times) and “heart-piercing” (The Independent) singing.

Richard Egarr and William Carter, two baroque music heavy-weights, join Pierce for this recording, made in Haarlem, Netherlands.
