edit Biography
edit Early life and career
Purcell was probably born in St Ann's Lane, Old Pye Street, Westminster . Henry Purcell Senior was a gentleman of the Chapel Royal , and sang at the coronation of King Charles II of England . His brother Thomas Purcell (d. 1682) was also a musician and Henry Junior may possibly have been his son (see below) rather than Henry Senior's. Henry the elder had three sons, Edward, Henry, and Daniel. Daniel Purcell (d. ), the youngest of the brothers, was also a prolific composer who wrote the music for much of the final act of The Indian Queen after Henry Purcell's death.

Henry Purcell has been one of my greatest favourites for several years, and I believe he is the greatest British composer ever. I am not alone to believe this. A couple of years ago, Classic CD had this as their cover story. View the cover here (108 Kb) Henry Purcell was born into a family of musicians, and he has a musical upbringing as a boy chorister (as have many other British composers). It was very fortunate for young Henry that he was born at the time he was, and not earlier. Cromwell's regime ended in 1660, and it was a good thing for the musical establishment. Cornwall destroyed the musical establishment in Britain, and they had to began all over again when Charles II entered the throne. So, there were few musicians around when Purcell was born. Purcell worked with the British Court until the 1680's, where he began composing more for the theatre (f.ex his semi operas.). Purcell made some of his greatest music for the royals. As good examples I can mention his odes, welcome songs, anthems and services. He also made instrumental music. During the 1690's Purcell wrote mostly for the theatre (f.ex. the Fairy queen, King Arthur and the Indian queen), but he did also write a beautiful and move ode on the death of Queen Mary in 1695 (and the same music were performed in his own funeral a few months later). My favourite Purcell work is his opera "

Henry Purcell
Baroque Period Composers Purcell was one of the greatest composers of the Baroque period. Purcell was born in London in 1659, and he died in Westminster Abbey in 1695 from natural causes. He had six children and he was married in 1681. There was no record of him traveling. Purcell learned his music in Westminster in 1679. While he was there he was a choirboy, he tuned instruments and he was a private pupil of Matthew Lock and John Blow. He wrote music for the church, and for the theatres. He was a chorister in the Chapel Royal. He made organs and kept them for the king. He was an appointed composer-in-ordinary for the King's Violins. He wrote Dido and Aeneas for a girls' school. Purcell wrote Strike the Viol, Rigadoon, Sarabande, Air and Corant in G . We liked Air because it was soft and peaceful. Music by Purcell

Introduction (born 1659; died Westminster, 21 November 1695). He was a chorister in the Chapel Royal until his voice broke in 1673, and he was then made assistant to John Hingeston, whom he succeeded as organ maker and keeper of the king's instruments in 1683. In 1677 he was appointed composer-in-ordinary for the king's violins and in 1679 succeeded his teacher, Blow, as organist of Westminster Abbey. It was probably in 1680 or 1681 that he married. From that time he began writing music for the theatre. In 1682 he was appointed an organist of the Chapel Royal. His court appointments were renewed by James II in 1685 and by William III in 1689, and on each occasion he had the duty of providing a second organ for the coronation. The last royal occasion for which he provided music was Queen Mary's funeral in 1695. Before the year ended Purcell himself was dead; he was buried in Westminster Abbey on 26 November 1695.

Henry Purcell was one of the greatest English composers, flourishing in the period that followed the Restoration of the monarchy after the Puritan Commonwealth period. Purcell spent much of his short life in the service of the Chapel Royal as a composer, organist and singer. With considerable gifts as a composer, he wrote extensively for the stage, particularly in a hybrid musico-dramatic form of the time, for the church and for popular entertainment, a master of English word-setting and of contemporary compositional techniques for instruments and voices. He died in 1695, a year after composing funeral music for Queen Mary. Stage Works Church Music Purcell provided a number of verse anthems and full anthems for the liturgy of the Church of England, as well as settings of the Morning and Evening Service, the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis, Te Deum and Jubilate. The anthems offer considerable musical interest, exemplified in the verse anthems Rejoice in the Lord alway and My heart is inditing. Other sacred vocal music includes the Latin psalm setting Jehovah, quam multi sunt as well as settings of sacred poems by contemporary writers. Secular Vocal Music Purcell's secular vocal music includes a number of Odes for the feast of St. Cecilia, patron saint of music and a number of Welcome Songs and other celebrations of royal occasions. He wrote a considerable quantity of solo songs, in addition to the songs included in his work for the theatre. These solo songs and the songs for two or more voices offer a particularly rich repertoire, exemplified by the song Music for a while, from the play Oedipus and Man is for a woman made, from The Mock Marriage. Other vocal works include a number of catches, rounds for popular entertainment.

Listen March, Purcell The excerpt from Purcell's march from the music for the funeral of Queen Mary, 1695, is played by The King's Consort, conducted by Robert King.
The recording is made available by courtesy of Hyperion Records Ltd. The music played at his funeral was none other than that which he had written for the funeral of Queen Mary II only 10 months earlier. The three hundredth anniversary of the death of Purcell was commemorated at the British Library by this exhibition. Most of the major surviving autograph manuscripts in the UK were brought together and shown along with related printed material and pictorial and documentary sources.

BAROQUE COMPOSERS AND MUSICIANS Henry Purcell Born in 1659, Henry Purcell was the finest and most original composer of his day. Though he was to live a very short life (he died in 1695) he was able to enjoy and make full use of the renewed flowering of music after the Restoration of the Monarchy. As the son of a musician at Court, a chorister at the Chapel Royal, and the holder of continuing royal appointments until his death, Purcell worked in Westminster for three different Kings over twenty-five years. In the Chapel Royal young Purcell studied with Dr. John Blow. Dr. Burney, the eighteenth century historian, is amusingly skeptical on this point: "..... he had a few lessons from Dr. Blow, which were sufficient to cancel all the instructions he had received from other masters, and to occasion the boast inscribed on the tomb-stone of Blow, that he had been 'Master to the famous Mr. Henry Purcell'." Legend has it that when, in 1679, Purcell succeeded Dr. Blow as organist of Westminster Abbey, the elder musician stepped aside in recognition of the greater genius, and it is true that on Purcell's death in 1695 Blow returned to the post, and would write a noble Ode on the Death of Purcell. In addition to his royal duties Purcell also devoted much of his talent to writing operas, or rather musical dramas, and incidental stage music; but he would also write chamber music in the form of harpsichord suites and trio sonatas, and became involved with the growing London public concert scene. Indeed one of the most important musical developments in Restoration London was the gradual establishment of regular public concerts. Even the few meetings that began as private concerns were eventually prevailed upon to admit the general public, such as the group that gave concerts in the Castle Tavern. Whereas other organizations charged only a shilling, their admittance fee was more than twice that sum, and before long they had enough capital to equip a music room in York Buildings.

19. HOASM: Henry Purcell
Biography noting unsolved proof of parentage and early life, portraits, related composers, partial discography from the Here of a Sunday Morning radio
Henry Purcell
(ca. 1659 - 1695)
English composer. Little is known of his life, and his parentage remains unclear, although it is certain that he had three brothers: Edward, Daniel, and Joseph. As a boy Henry was a chorister in the Chapel Royal, where he presumably studied with Cooke Humfrey , and Blow ; at the age of eight he contributed a three-part song to Playford's Catch That Catch Can. A second early work, written in 1670 and now lost, was recorded as an "Address of the Children of the Chapel Royal to the King, and their master, Captain Cooke ... composed by Master Purcell, one of the Children of the said Chapel." After his voice broke in 1673 he became assistant to John Hingeston, who was in charge of keeping the royal instruments in repair. Purcell became the organ tuner at Westminster Abbey (1674-78), succeeded Matthew Locke as composer-in-ordinary for the violins in 1677, and was appointed organist of Westminster Abbey in 1679. In 1682 Purcell succeeded Edward Lowe as an organist at the Chapel Royal, and the following year, after Hingeston 's death, was appointed organ maker and keeper of the king's instruments. Purcell's funeral took place in Westminster Abbey on November 26, 1695.
