Purcell: Complete Edition 16-CD set



Known as the ‘English Orpheus’, Henry Purcell’s music occupies a central position in British culture. This wonderful 16-CD compilation pays homage to the man who created a uniquely English form of Baroque music. You’ll be amazed at the length and breadth of Purcell’s output, from the many sacred works he was wrote for state occasion and worship (‘Hear My Prayer, O Lord’ and ‘Hail! bright Cecilia’, among others) to secular instrumental, organ, and vocal music, written for domestic pleasure as well as the theatre.Total Time: Over 17 hours16CD# BRI94665
