Daniel Purcell (1664 - November 26, 1717), was an English composer, the younger brother of Henry Purcell. As a teenager, Daniel Purcell joined the choir of the Chapel Royal, and in his mid-twenties he became organist of Magdalen College, Oxford. He began to compose while at Oxford, but in 1695 he moved to London to compose for the theatre. In 1700, he came third in a competition for the best musical setting of William Congreve's masque, The Judgement of Paris. In 1713 he was appointed organist of St Andrew's, Holborn.
