Henry Purcell: Hear My Prayer, O Lord (SSAATTBB)

Books | Choral, Organ

Publisher: Novello & Co Ltd.
Composer: Henry Purcell
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Hear My Prayer, Oh Lord, manifests Purcell’s genius not only in his unerring setting of each line, but in addition of challenging intervals and discordant moments to what is a deceptively simple melodic line. Purcell’s affecting anthem Hear My Prayer, Oh Lord, was writing in 1680, approximately, and is likely to be part of a larger unfinished work. The autograph manuscript is held in the Cambridge Fitzwilliam Museum, from which John E West has edited this rendering of the work.
