We have begun learning about Henry Purcell, a contemporary of Charles II, who is a well-known English composer. He was very influential and was the most important English composer from the Stuart time. We’ve started listening to Abdelazer and hearing how Purcell created tension and helped to create stories in our minds. We’ve created a simple graphic score and will be trying to interpret these when we play instruments.
Interpreting our graphic scores on tuned and untuned instruments
Reading staff notation
We’ve built up our learning over a series of lessons and now we’ve moved onto reading staff notation. We’ve practiced a rondo section on both tuned and untuned percussion or on our own instruments and we’ve been rehearsing for a final class performance. We hope you enjoy listening to our version of Purcell’s famous piece of music!
