Biography

England (1659 – 1695)

Henry Purcell (10th September 1659 – 21st November 1695), was an English composer of the Baroque period.

He is generally considered to be one of England’s greatest composers — indeed, he has often been called England’s finest native composer. Purcell incorporated Italian and French stylistic elements, but devised a peculiarly English style of Baroque music.
