(Music Sales America). Henry Purcell had a marvelous natural ability for counterpoint, which was especially evident when combining pungent English counterpoint with expressive, flexible, and dramatic word settings. His organ music is no less a showcase for his melodic abilities and, in this edition, a feast of intelligent keyboard writing lies. This compilation contains six works plus an appendix by John Blow, including the Voluntary in D Minor for double organ.
