Vaughan Williams on Music

Oxford University Press

Henry Purcell's songs appear in vocal recitals. This chapter mentions only the better-known music, but there are equal treasures that until quite lately have lain hidden in manuscripts. The Purcell Society has at last almost completed its labours, carried on by the devotion of a few experts who gave their scanty leisure to the work and were entirely neglected by the State or the public. These programmes, to which this book refers, are to be welcomed and commended as offering, during the Festival of Britain, a wide range of music rarely heard that will demonstrate the power, vitality, and originality of one of Britain's greatest composers.
