The present ode was the first of many commissioned ,The Musical Society' for the annual celebration of St. Cecilia's Day (November 22nd). It was obviously a great success, for the ode was printed in score in 1684 and the Society had to move for the 1684 celebrations to a later hall, the Stationer's Hall.
The ode of 1683 shows Purcell's ingenuity in every aspect and set a high standard for all the other composers who followed him among them Blow and Handel.
The present edition has the above mentioned print of 1684 as source. Title page dedication and the first and last pages are here reprinted in facsimile. The few obvious misprints in the original have been corrected. Editiorial additions are in brackets.
(Walter Bergmann) Die einzige bekannte Quelle befindet sich in Heft 66 von Band 25 der Meslanges-Autographen die an die Bibliotheque Royale (heute Bibliotheque Nationale) Paris verkauft wurde. Das Manuskript ist sehr sorgfaltig geschrieben. Alle Zusatze des Herausgebers stehen in eckigen Klammern.
