Purcell Society Edition Companion Series
Purcell Society Edition Companion Series In addition to the new volumes in the Purcell Society Edition, Stainer & Bell are also publishing the Purcell Society Edition Companion Series which will make a significant contribution to the study of music and theatre in Restoration England.

The Purcell Society Edition Companion Series presents in modern critical texts - and in many cases for the first time - a varied repertoire of hitherto largely inaccessible work by the composer's contemporaries, which will both illuminate his own achievement and further our understanding of this flourishing yet complex period of musical and theatrical activity as a whole.
