An ode is a secular lyric poem, often set musically, on a subject serving as an inspiration to the poet (or musician). The Ode on the Death of Mr. Henry Purcell is here, and gets top billing in the graphics; the three other odes are equally good, not common, and well worth your time to get to know.

Tenor Vocals – Nicholas Madden, Samuel Boden, Thomas Walker (8). Notes. Recorded in St Jude-on-the-Hill, Hampstead Garden Suburb, London, on 16 - 18 July 2015. Jewel case, black tray, 16-page booklet.

In Samuel Boden and Thomas Walker, director Jonathan Cohen has harnessed a quintessentially English sound whose lyricism fits the vocal writing like a glov. hroughout, the instrumental contribution is a joy; Cohen’s direction a model of stylish empathy and suavely-negotiated gear changes’ (BBC Music Magazine) More. John Blow is one of the greatest of not-quite-forgotten English composers. He also became organist of Westminster Abbey-generously yielding the post in 1679 to his pupil Henry Purcell, whose brilliance urgently demanded that he be kept in London, and whose then impending marriage might have forced him to accept a provincial appointment. The lives and careers of the two men were thereafter closely intertwined, and they remained close friends until Purcell’s early death.

Samuel Boden and Thomas Walker are perfect for the tenor/countertenor range of Blow’s vivid vocal lines, particularly in the sombre beauty of his lament on Purcell’s death. Special mention for Callum Thorpe, bass, who mines the lowest register down to a bottom D in Music’s the Cordial of a Troubled Breast, one of the many highlights of the ode Begin the Song! Topics.
