Composers Purcell, Henry Purcell, Henry Henry Purcell, b. London, c.1659, d. Nov. 21, 1695, was the most eminent British composer of his time. He studied with his father and later with Henry Cooke, Pelham Humfrey, and possibly Matthew Locke, whom he succeeded in 1677 as composer for the royal string band. Two years later he was appointed organist of Westminster Abbey, and from 1682 onward he served as one of the organists of the Chapel Royal. Although his forebears and some of his descendants were musicians, the talents of this remarkable family seem to have concentrated themselves in Henry, who despite a creative career of less than 20 years wrote music of the highest quality and originality for virtually every known genre.
The secular works are wide-ranging: more than 100 solo songs (some with chorus), compositions for small ensembles (including a choice collection of delightfully ribald catches), andon a grander scaleoccasional pieces written for the arrival, birthday, or marriage of royal or noble personages and for the perennial celebrations on Saint Cecilia's Day. This last-mentioned genre usually inspired Purcell to write descriptive and colorful scores whose glorification of the patron saint of music is impressive and moving. The finest of these is Hail! Bright Cecilia, written in 1692.

Purcell, Henry
Purcell, Henry. The outstanding musician and composer of his time in Britain. Like other 17th-cent. musicians, Purcell's career began in the church, first as a chorister at the Chapel Royal, then as organist at Westminster abbey composing anthems. At court he enjoyed the favour of successive monarchs composing odes on special occasions, but his works for Mary II are the best known, composed when Purcell was reaching the height of his powers, just before his premature death. The music he composed for her funeral is of a truly majestic solemnity and profundity.
His opera Dido and Aeneas (1689) is notable for achieving a high degree of dramatic intensity within a narrow framework. This he followed with the "semi-operas" King Arthur (1691), The Fairy Queen (1692), and The Indian Queen (1695). He also wrote much incidental music, some 250 songs, 12 fantasias for viol consort, and many anthems and services. He is regarded as the greatest English composer after William Byrd and before the 20th century.

    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.
