The tercentenary of Henry Purcell’s death fell in 1995, and this volume of specially commissioned essays was collected to celebrate Purcell’s music in his tercentenary year. The essays are representative of the best recent research and deal mainly with the autograph manuscripts, Purcell’s compositional technique, the relationship between Purcell and his teacher John Blow, a reassessment of Purcell court odes, performance practice and wordsetting, and eighteenth-century reception history, particularly regarding King Arthur. The volume is well illustrated with music examples and photographs of important manuscripts.It also analyses Purcell’s compositional techniques through detailed study of his manuscripts and reports on the discovery of two important autograph manuscripts. The book opens with an assessment of Purcell’s illusive personality.
