En af de bedste barok operaer der er skrevet er Henry Purcell: King Arthur. Trevor Pinnock indspillede denne i 1992 sammen med en virkelig stjernebesætning for Deutsche Grammophon. I mellemtiden er den også udkommet på Brilliant, til en noget anden pris end den helt identiske på DGG. Vi fører ikke den på DGG. Da den koster 299,00 mens den på Brilliant koster mindre end en 1/3 Og de er helt ens. 2 CD.
