Interesting facts and trivia about Henry Purcell. By Songfacts®.

Henry Purcell was born in St. Ann's Lane, Old Pye Street Westminster, London, probably in 1659. As far as is known he spent his entire life in Westminster.

In 1682 Purcell became organist of the Chapel Royal, combining the job with his already existing role of organist at Westminster Abbey. His first printed composition, "Twelve Sonatas," was published the following year.

Although he only lived until his mid-30s, Purcell wrote a very large amount of music. The most original English composer of his time, he merged the Italian and French styles with the English madrigal tradition to create a uniquely English form of Baroque music. Many believe Purcell was England's greatest composer until Sir Edward Elgar emerged 200 years later.
