Henry Purcell (ca.1659 - 1695), was an English composer. Although incorporating Italian and French stylistic elements into his compositions, Purcell's legacy was a uniquely English form of Baroque music. He is generally considered to be one of the greatest English composers; no other native-born English composer approached his fame until Edward Elgar.

Taken from the incidental music to Shadwell?s play "The Libertine" or "The Libertine Destroyed", Purcell's original choral piece "In these delightful pleasant groves" is a genuine highlight of British choral music of the baroque period with its lively exuberance of dance and his onomatopoeic effects.

He died in 1695 at the height of his powers; he was only in his mid-thirties. He breathed his last at his house in Dean's Yard, Westminster, leaving a widow and three living children (three others predeceased him). His widow died in 1706, having published a number of his works, including the now famous collection called Orpheus Britannicus (two books, 1698 and 1702).

Although originally written for Chorus and Basso continuo, I adapted this piece for Concert (Pedal) Harp and Woodwind Quartet (Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon).
