Description

Henry Purcell (1659-1695) held numerous appointments at the Royal court and Westminster Abbey, and is considered by many to be the greatest ever English-born composer. His prolific work covered all fields: orchestral,ecclesiastical, operatic, theatrical, incidental, and chamber music were all enriched by his output.

One of Purcell’s last pieces, Who Can From Joy Refrain? (Z 342) was written for the 6th birthday ofPrince William, Duke of Gloucester, in June 1695. The Prince was said to enjoy the brash tone of the Trumpet, so the prominent Trumpet part was written especially for him. Unusually, Purcell also made use oftherecently-introduced Oboe and Bassoon.

A real asset to the catalogue, A Song For The Duke Of Gloucester's Birthday showcases the very best of Purcell’s genius.
