Henry Purcell

Purcell nacque probabilmente a Westminster, Londra, il 10 settembre del 1659. Suo padre, Henry Purcell, era corista nella Cappella reale, e cantò all’incoronazione di re Carlo II d’Inghilterra. Aveva tre figli. Dopo la morte del padre nel 1664, il giovane Henry venne seguito da suo zio Thomas Purcell († 1682), il quale gli dimostrò sempre grande affetto e gentilezza. Thomas era cantore nella Cappella di sua Maestà, iniziando contemporaneamente la sua attività di compositore di musica sacra e di pezzi vocali di diverso genere. Read more on Last.fm
