One of the greatest and most original composers of the seventeenth century, Henry Purcell produced a uniquely English form of music by incorporating French and Italian stylistic elements into his compositions. Two celebratory odes, written to commemorate St. Cecilia and Queen Mary respectively, serve as the backdrop for a festive program featuring Purcell’s varied and unique works.
Now does the glorious day appear (Birthday Ode for Queen Mary, 1689)
Welcome to all the Pleasures (Ode to St. Cecilia’s Day, 1683)
Rejoice in the Lord alway (Bell Anthem)
Man that is born of a woman (from Funeral Music for Queen Mary, 1695)
In the midst of life (from Funeral Music for Queen Mary, 1695)
Hear my prayer, O Lord
including music from King Arthur and Fairy Queen
