Alfred Deller

On Alfred Deller's 100th birthday From 1967 until his death in July 1979, Alfred Deller, born in 1912 in Margate, England, regularly appeared in front of the recording microphones of harmonia mundi. His recordings became bestsellers (Music for a While, O Solitude), influenced several generations of musicians and continue to delight a worldwide audience. "The immediacy and intimacy of his solo interpretations of Dowland, Purcell or Morley impresses even today's listeners. As an interpreter of English folk songs, Deller is completely in his element: "Iridescent beauty of sound and expressiveness close to the lyrics determine the high suggestive power of these recordings."
