This is a marvellous collection of pieces by Henry Purcell newly arranged for the Organ by concert organist Martin Setchell. Purcell's music is perfectly suited to the Organ, and a number of his pieces have long been popular with players. This volume brings together a range of well-known pieces - trumpet tunes, the Rondeau from Abdelazer, Dido's Lament, and movements from The Fairy Queen - and combines these with a wonderful selection of lesser-known pieces from across Purcell's work. There are sprightly tunes and hornpipes from the stage works, lovely reflective songs and airs, and a wide range of dances and chaconnes. The result is a set of pieces with wise and varied church and concert use, perfectly accessible to intermediate players, and making a valuable addition to any organist's repertoire.

Martin Setchell is Associate Professor of Music, University Organist, and tutor in Organ at the University of Canterbury, School Of Music, New Zealand. He combines his university teaching and research career with a busy and international schedule of recitals and concerts as soloist, accompanist, and continuo player on Organ and Harpsichord.

Rating Review
Customer Rating I have been looking for an organ arrangement of the music from "King Arthur" for some time so I was pleased to see that it features in this album. The pieces are well printed and edited in a slim volume that sits well on the music stand and is easy to turn. The arrangements are reasonably straightforward to play so you do not need to be a virtuoso to play them.

All in all a useful album of Purcell's music to have in your bag as you walk down to the church on a Sunday. As always it came quickly and is good value at the price.
