Μουσική του Henry Purcell, κορυφαίας φυσιογνωμίας του Βρετανικού μπαρόκ, με αφορμή την νεκρώσιμη τελετή για την Βασίλισσα Mary III [Μάρτιος 1695].
Το έργο εκτελέσθηκε και στην κηδεία του ίδιου του συνθέτη, τον Νοέμβριο του ίδιου έτους.
Το εισαγωγικό [και καταληκτικό] March είναι περισσότερο γνωστό από την ηλεκτρονική βερσιόν του Walter [Wendy] Carlos που ακούγεται στην ταινία “Κουρδιστό Πορτοκάλι”.

Music by Henry Purcell, prominent figure of British Baroque, on the occasion of the funeral ceremony for Queen Mary III [March 1695]. The work was also performed at the funeral of the composer himself, in November of the same year.
The introductory [and concluding] March is best known in Walter [Wendy] Carlos’ electronic version heard on the film “A Clockwork Orange”.

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
