It is a wonderful film and Henry Purcell, one of the best English composers around,is a most fascinating composer to write about.

I would really like to buy a DVD or tape of this film but is finding it an impossible task.

I'm wondering where can one get a hold of it? This is merely a question about this film.

Can anyone tell me how I can get a DVD or tape of this movie?

It seems it is unavailable out there for the most part. Anyone who can help me in locating this film, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
