Purcell - Now That the Sun Hath Veil'd (Baroque/Anglican/Soprano/Or
Purcell - Now That the Sun Hath Veil'd (Baroque/Anglican/Soprano/Or This is the same video posted before (with 446 views as of March 19, 2010) but it's been saved and uploaded in a better format and therefore this should be a higher quality than the previous one. This is a Baroque piece composed by Henry Purcell, using the words of Dr. William Fuller and performed by William Christie and Les Arts Florissants. The woman's voice is so pure and true to the music of the period, with no vibrato. I chose photos that attempt to capture the architecture of the day, especially in the cathedrals, organs and even the dress of the period. As a friend who is an Episcopal priest told me, he felt the piece was a representation of Anglican worship at it's finest. Another friend told me he always felt somehow "cleaner" after listening to Purcell. While I know that this is Baroque music I will include the word "classical" here as some lump all "old" music in that category.

Purcell: Elegy upon the Death of Queen Mary Henry Purcell (1659-95) O dive custos Auriacae domus (Elegy upon the Death of Queen Mary), Z 504 Text by Henry Parker (1695) Mária Víz - soprano Júlia Sárkány - soprano Katalin Hegedűs - keyboard Júlia Regős - viola da gamba Rózsafüzér Királynéja (Domonkos) templom, Budapest 2010.05.09. ******* O dive custos auriacae domus Et spes labantis certior imperi; O rebus adversis vocande, O superum decus in secundis! Seu te fluentem pronus ad Isida In vota fervens Oxonidum chorus, Seu te precantur, quos remoti Unda lavat properata Cami, Discende caelo non ita creditas Visurus aedes praesidiis tuis, Descende visurus penates Caesaris, et penetrale sacrum. Maria musis flebilis occidit, Maria, gentis deliciae brevis; O flete Mariam! flete Camoenae! O flete, Divae, dea moriente. ******* O sacred guardian of the House of Orange, And certain hope of faltering sovereignty, O thou on whom we call in our misfortunes, Our chiefest glory in prosperity! Whether to thee, prostrate by Isis' stream, Th'Oxonian chorus pays its ardent vows, Or whether they entreat thee, who are laved By hastening waters of the distant Cam, Come down from heaven to visit these thy temples, Bestowed - not thus - upon thy votaries; Come down, to see the sacred hearth and home Of Caesar, and to pass into the shrine. Mary is dead: lament now, O ye Muses! Mary, the brief delight of all our nation; O weep for Mary! weep, O soul of poesy! Weep, goddesses: divinity is dead.

Henry Purcell -Trumpet Tune and Bell Symphony
Henry Purcell -Trumpet Tune and Bell Symphony Henry Purcell (10 September 1659 (?) - 21 November 1695), was an English Baroque composer. Purcell incorporated Italian and French stylistic elements but devised a peculiarly English style of Baroque music. Purcell is among the Baroque composers who has had a direct influence on modern rock and roll; according to Pete Townshend of The Who, Purcell was among his influences, particularly evident in the opening bars of The Who's "Pinball Wizard". The song "Procession" by British rock band Queen is obviously inspired by the processional section from Purcell's "Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary," which was also adapted for the synthesizer by Wendy Carlos to serve as the theme music for the 1971 film A Clockwork Orange. Meanwhile, noted cult New Wave artist Klaus Nomi regularly performed "The Cold Song" from King Arthur during his career, including a version on his debut self-titled album, Klaus Nomi, from 1981; his last public performance before his untimely death was an interpretation of the piece done with a full orchestra in December 1982 in Munich. Purcell wrote the song for a bass, but numerous countertenors have performed the piece in homage to Nomi. In the 21st century, the soundtrack to the 2005 film version of Pride and Prejudice features a dance titled "A Postcard to Henry Purcell," which is a version by composer Dario Marianelli of the Abdelazar theme.
