Leo Scotiae Irritatus
and other cantatas by
John Clerk of Penicuik (1676-1755)
Catherine Bott, soprano
Hyperion CDA 67007
Soprano Catherine Bott, one of our greatest exponents of Baroque music, has never sounded more winning, handling with dextrous ease the vocal pyrotechnics these demanding works command.
Definitely one of the most important releases of Scottish music, and one immeasurably enriched by John Purser's enlightening notes.
