Henry Purcell

Henry Purcell has been played on NTS over 30 times, featured on 27 episodes and was first played on 5 November 2015.

Henry Purcell (10th September 1659 – 21st November 1695), was an English composer of the Baroque period.

He is generally considered to be one of England's greatest composers — indeed, he has often been called England's finest native composer. Purcell incorporated Italian and French stylistic elements, but devised a peculiarly English style of Baroque music.
