'It's difficult to imagine how this new recording could be bettered' (Fanfare, USA)
This brief but eloquent anthem, written for the funeral of Queen Mary in 1695, shows Purcell’s style at its simplest and most moving. The music, almost all note-against-note without contrapuntal elaboration, unfolds with dignity and pathos.

from notes by Collegium Records 1988
