This is a scholarly-but-singable edition of this important Purcell work. It’s one of the very approachable works he wrote while was working at Westminster Abbey. The B section can be sung by a trio of solo voices, though light SSA choral sections work well, too. The piece concludes with the tune we know as Westminster Abbey.
