The mission of the Henry Purcell Society of Boston is to present historically informed, vibrant performances of the works of Henry Purcell and his contemporaries. We foster collaborations with other arts organizations to perform the full breadth of Purcell’s compositions: the incidental theater music, operas and semi- operas (in entertaining realizations of the plays for which they were written), odes, symphony songs written for the Royal Court, sacred and secular songs for vocal solo and ensemble voice, and instrumental music. We will also educate audience members on the conventions and style of the English Baroque though our concerts, concert notes and website information.
