English Royal Funeral Music

Much anticipated new release from the Gramophone Record of the Year winning Vox Luminis! We know now that Purcell's three Funeral Sentences were not written for the funeral of Queen Mary in 1695.Following the tradition of the English court,it was pieces by Thomas Morley,originally written for the funeral of Elizabeth I,that were sung there.Purcell's only contribution to the ceremony was the composition of two pieces for slide trumpets(March and Canzona),and the anthem in the archaic style Thou knowest,Lord.During the funeral procession to Westminster Abbey,a band of oboes played two marches written by John Paisible and Thomas Tollet.This recording assembles the music composed for the funeral of Queen Mary and that used at the funeral of Elizabeth I in 1603.The programme is completed by Purcell's sublime a cappella anthems and a moving anthem by Weelkes on the death of Thomas Morley.After the success of the recording of Schütz's Musicalische Exequien(RIC311),voted Record of the Year by Gramophone magazine,this disc will be one of the major events of spring 2013.
