Track 18 is Henry Purcell's "When I Am Laid In Earth" from Dido and Aeneas   Wednesday, August 3, 2005 (11:01 a.m.) 

Track 18, "Nixon’s Walk" is actually an adaptation from the 3 last pieces from "Dido and Aeneas" by English composer Henry Purcell. The pieces are called "Thy Hand, Belinda; Darkness Shades Me", "When I Am Laid In Earth" and "With Drooping Wings" and they are some of the most beautiful pieces I have ever heard, when performed and sang as it was actually written by Purcell.

This is indeed correct! I'm surprised to not find this indicated, since it would only serve to make listeners check out Purcell's works, too. I don't have the CD, so I'll assume that it's indicated in the liner notes somewhere.
