This 1991 publication of a Purcell melody arranged by Dolores Hruby provides us with one more delightful opportunity to introduce the classics to children. It is so important for them to sing and listen to understand all styles of music. Literature of this kind usually becomes a favorite of theirs when they know it well. This Purcell piece is tuneful, joyful, and simple enough so that groups just starting this type of literature will not be overwhelmed but will have a good experience and be eager for more.
