Semele is an opera by John Eccles. The libretto is by William Congreve, drawing on the Greek myth of Semele. The opera was written in 1707, but was never performed in Eccles's lifetime; in fact, the work was not performed until 22 April 1972 when it was given at St John's, Smith Square in London

He founded in 1969 and directs the early music ensemble The Consort of Musicke, which continues to be one of the chief vehicles for his inspiration, among many other activities and interests. He has recorded extensively and continues to perform solo and duo repertoire with sopranos Evelyn Tubb and former partner Emma Kirkby. Dowland: Third Booke of Songes, 1603 - 7.

Why dost thou thus untimely. The music of English composers . 700 has been an increasing passion of Anthony Rooley for some years now. This project was a labour of love for him and his passion for the project seems, as time progressed, to have spread to the young performers too. They are from the Florida University Opera School. The background to their involvement and a quick advertising job for the school is given in the booklet notes. Thinking of the notes there is a very entertaining and chatty essay concerning the opera, the plot and mythology in general and also the music itself by Anthony Rooley
