This is the first anthology to contain all Purcell's most popular anthems. It covers the whole range of full, verse, and symphony anthems, including such famous pieces as the Funeral Sentences, Rejoice in the Lord alway and Hear my Prayer. The collection comprises entirely new and specially prepared editions, with fully realized organ parts and easily playable score reductions of the anthems with strings. Any choir that cares about giving first-class performances will find the selection of pieces, the immaculate editing, and the authoritative information on performance practice indispensable.
ContentsHear my prayer, O Lord
I was glad
O God, the King of glory
Remember not, Lord, our offences
Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts (second setting)
Jehova, quam multi sunt hostes mei!
Lord, how long wilt thou be angry?
O God, thou art my God
Thy word is a lantern
O sing unto the Lord
Rejoice in the Lord alway.
