Essays on his Music First published 1959, reprinted 1963. Hardback. [x], 136pp.Dust jacket. Originally published to mark the tercentenary of Purcell's birth in 1659. Interest in Purcell and his music is as great as ever and these essays still speak of him with relevance to the modern reader. Amongst the contributors are: Peter Pears, Benjamin BRitten, Michael tippett, Ralph Downes and others. The publisher's hope was that this volume will contribute to a proper realization of Purcell's place as one of the greatest of English composers.

Some discolouration to the spine.
