Rigadoon - The Second Part of Musick's Hand-maidThis 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.
