Product Description Header Image Information about A Purcell Organ Album

A wonderful collection of pieces by Purcell, newly arranged for solo organ
Valuable addition to the organ repertoire
Mixture of well-known and less well-known pieces
Pieces of intermediate difficulty (Associated Board Grades 5-6)
Suitable for a wide range of concert and church service uses

This is a marvellous collection of pieces by Henry Purcell newly arranged for the organ by concert organist Martin Setchell. Purcell's music works perfectly on the organ, and a number of his pieces have long been popular with players. This volume brings together all those must-have pieces - the trumpet tunes, rondeau from Abdelazer, and so on - and combines these with a wonderful selection of lesser-known pieces from across Purcell's work. There are sprightly curtain tunes and hornpipes from the stage pieces, lovely reflective songs and airs, and a wide range of dances and chaconnes. The result is a set of pieces with wide and varied church and concert use, perfectly accessible to intermediate players. Publication in 2009 coincides with the 350th anniversary of the composer's birth, and the volume makes a valuable addition to any organist's repertoire.
