Program Notes on Riggadoon in C Major, Z. 653 by Purcell, H. :

This Rigadoon in C Major, Z. 653 by Henry Purcell is part of The Second Part of Musick's Hand-maid.

This was a very important album of English Baroque music.

It was published in London in 1689.

This album contains music by two of England's greatest composers of Baroque music : John Blow and Henry Purcell, as well as works by other English composers.

Please note that this score contains suggestions for performing the ornaments (here : shake, beat and shake turn'd) in accordance with the performance practice of Henry Purcell himself.

Indeed, we have used as a reference Purcell's own Rules for Graces as found in Purcell's A Choice Collection of Lessons for the Harpsichord of Spinnet.
