Alfred Deller: The Complete Vanguard Recordings

Alfred Deller was a musical pioneer. His career as an acclaimed countertenor, pioneering conductor, and inveterate scholar was a major force behind renewed interest in renaissance and baroque music, and shaped the early years of the movement toward authentic performance practice. His partnership with producer Seymour Solomon from the years 1952 to 1967 yielded an astounding fifty LP releases on the Vanguard label, including many recording premieres.

In 2008, Musical Concepts released the first of six thematically compiled volumes in its edition, including a CD-R with extensive annotation and complete original liner notes.
