Abstract:

The name and work of Henry Purcell are known to writers upon music, composers, and organists both in and out of England. This book, then, is intended for musical amateurs desirous of widening the range of their knowledge. We have not thought it fitting to isolate Purcell from his period and surroundings. The slight historical survey and the few remarks of a literary order that the reader will find in this book have as their object to throw the figure of the English musician into relief. - Preface.
