Henry Purcell (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.
This march was published in "Marches for Keyboard" in
1687 and although originally written for Harpsichord, I
created this arrangement for a Bassoon Duet.
