Come Ye Sons of Art, Z.323, also known as Ode for Queen Mary's birthday, is a musical ode written by Henry Purcell in 1694 in honor of the birthday of Queen Mary II of England. The text is often attributed to Nahum Tate.

Purcell begins the ode with a symphony or overture consisting of three movements: a largo followed by a fugal canzona and an adagio. Purcell later rewrote the opening symphony and incorporated into his opera The Indian Queen. The opening chorus is on the words "Come, Ye sons of Art," and serves as the introduction to the text. For the countertenor duet Sound the Trumpet, instead of using actual trumpets, Purcell choose to incorporate a two-bar modulating ground bass as the singers imitate the sound of trumpets. The day that such a blessing gave is intended to be a prayer for the day be of jubilation. This joy is displayed in the rest of the composition.

"The earliest surviving complete source is a manuscript score signed by one ‘Rob[er]t Pindar’, and dated 1765—some seventy years after Purcell’s death."[4] A new performance edition was published by Stainer & Bell in 2010, edited by Rebecca Herissone. Comparisons of existing manuscript or autograph scores led to the removal of eighteenth-century "enhancement". Dr. Herissone states that Purcell did not incorporate music from The Indian Queen into Come Ye Sons of Art, but that the editor (Robert Pinder) of the only surviving published edition of the work made drastic changes, including incorporating music from several of Purcell's previous theater works. This new edition is based on a comparison of Come Ye Sons of Art with manuscripts of other Odes written by Purcell showing exactly the same instrumental and editorial changes made by Pindar.

Herissone also points out that the "opening solo quite clearly begins ‘Come, ye sons of arts’, in the plural, not ‘Come, ye sons of art’ as in Pindar’s score, so the decision has been taken in the edition to follow the text as given in Purcell’s autograph." It appears the original title was 'Come, ye sons of arts.' The full article, along with a complete list of changes made by Pindar, is available in the 2010 publication by Stainer & Bell.

As the favorite composer of King William III of England, Purcell was given the task of composing odes for the birthday of Queen Mary. Come, Ye Sons of Art, written for performance in April 1694, was the sixth and final ode: Queen Mary died at the end of that year.

Although originally written for Voices (2) and Orchestra, I Arranged this piece for Trumpets (2) and Piano.
