Purcell, Henry, Hear my prayer, O Lord EMP0303 £2.00
General Use - Anthem ISMN M-2056-0303-8
Purcell's well-known 'Hear my prayer, O Lord' is recognised to be the first section of an otherwise unwritten work, presumably with texts drawn from a Psalm or Psalms. The fragment survives in a single manuscript, in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, in the composer's own hand, and the following pages are ruled in preparation for the work which was never pursued.
