Description

for SSATB soloists, SSATB choir, two trumpets, strings and continuo Written for St Cecilia's Day 1694, Purcell's popular Te Deum and Jubilate in D was the first work of its kind to be scored for orchestra, and it became the model for future settings of the text by Blow, Croft, and Handel. This new edition by Robert King has been prepared using the earliest available source material, combining up-to-date scholarship with a clear and practical layout. The edition includes an organ reduction for rehearsal purposes. Orchestral material is available on hire/rental.

About Author

Purcell was the outstanding musician and composer of his time in Britain. Like other seventeenth-century musicians, Purcell's career began in the church, first as a chorister at the Chapel Royal, then as organist at Westminster Abbey composing anthems. At court he enjoyed the favour of successive monarchs composing odes on special occasions, but his works for Mary II are the best known, composed when Purcell was reaching the height of his powers, just before his premature death.
