Details about Purcell : 20 Keyboard Pieces (from the manuscript discovered in 1993) |  Associated sheet music


This is a newly discovered manuscript of Henry Purcell's keyboard music.

The manuscript was discovered in November 1993 and is kept at the British Library.

This keyboard manuscript contains graded teaching material copied in the 1690s.

The Purcell section contains 21 pieces written on 22 pages and is the only surviving keyboard music written in Purcell's own hand.

It includes very simple pieces as well as two of the suites later published in 1696.

The manuscript also contains works by Giovanni Battista Draghi (c. 1640-1708).

In all likelihood this notebook was used for teaching purposes by Purcell and later on by Draghi.
