Vocal music by Henry Purcell next time on in the Mode. He lived only 36 years, but wrote a lot of incredible diverse music, considered the most original composer of his day. In his short time he worked in Westminster for 3 different kings, became organist at Westminster Abbey when he was 20. He died in 1695 and was buried beneath the organ there.
