This Ode is the last of six Purcell composed for the celebration of the birthday of Queen Mary, wife of William III. It was performed on 30th April, 1694 when the queen was 33 years old. She died in December of the same year. The author of the feeble, conventionally flattering words is unknown; it needed a genious like Purcell to create out of them this brilliant piece of music. for SATB Chorus, SAAB Soli and Orchestra.

    This is a fun, relatively simple baroque work for high school and above. Full/orchestral scores can be difficult to find.
