John Blow: "Ode on the Death of Mr. Henry Purcell"
for two contraltos, two treble recorders and basso continuo
and songs by Henry Purcell
and instrumental pieces by his contemporaries.


John Blow

John Blow was Henry Purcell's tutor and sacrificed his position as organist at Westminster Abbey (1680) so that he could promote his pupil. His "Ode on the death of Mr. Henry Purcell" portrays the warm feelings he felt for his pupil. The interesting and unusual feature of our interpretation is such that male and female contraltos were singing together and the female contralto is singing the lower part and the male contralto the higher part of this duet. We've since performed this programme several times (including in the Berliner Dom).
