'Every number brings new riches, and two have never been recorded before. Indeed, 'The Way of God' is a revelation' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'This disc is full of the wonderful writing that we expect from Purcell … that is becoming better known and understood through Robert King's performances' (Fanfare, USA)

'Every number brings new riches and two have never been recorded before. This magnificent project shows no signs of flagging' (BBC CD Review)

Lord, not to us, but to thy name, Z137
circa 1680
author of text
Psalm 115, second version

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Purcell’s setting of Lord, not to us, but to thy name is incomplete, for after twenty-four bars of the autograph score (in the British Museum) he simply writes in a thick stroke through the staves, leaving plenty of unused space in which he would have continued the work. Completed anthems usually receive a flourish to signify their end. Additionally, thirty-two lines of John Patrick’s paraphrase of Psalm 115 are left unset. The section that does survive makes a neat, if short, anthem.

from notes by Robert King İ
