A Blow Anthology: 8 Anthems (Paperback)Deborah Simpkin King (editor)

John Blow was arguably London's most influential musician during the latter half of the seventeenth century: as highly regarded as his famous pupil Henry Purcell. His full anthems reveal the last great flowering of the English choral tradition of Byrd and Gibbons and the eight pieces collected here show a uniquely individual expressive style with unexpected dissonances and harmonic turns. All these anthems are easy and appealing, with texts that are suitable for liturgical and concert use. The anthology also has an introduction that places the music in its historical context.
