Henry Purcell (September 10, 1659 – November 21, 1695) was the greatest baroque composer of his time. Handel stole its melodies the whole steps. Even Mozart has citations from Purcell.
Alfred Deller was the famous english counter-tenor. He established the new counter-tenors vocal art, the modern art of true anatomical men, not of castrats. His son, Mark Deller, continue art of his father. It is the great and very hard vocal work to expand a man's voice range. More about him see: http://www.bach-cantatas.com/Bio/Deller-Alfred.htm
