Pious Celinda goes to prayers, Z410

composer
Deliciae Musicae I, May 1695
author of text

 
Playford’s first volume of Deliciae Musicae, advertised in May 1695, contained four new songs by Purcell, including a setting of a typically cheeky poem by the young playwright William Congreve (1670–1725). Purcell’s response to the text was splendidly lighthearted.
