In the Mode: August 11, 2013

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. I’m Kristina Herrick, please join me for some beautiful vocal music by Henry Purcell.
