Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts, Z58c

Funeral Sentences, Book of Common Prayer

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.
