Henry Purcell

Calm and reposed, this piece needs a moderate, unhurried tempo. Students should make sure to voice the melody well, listening for a warm tone. Both hands frequently change to new positions; this movement can be challenging for beginning pianists. The phrases need to be long and connected despite the numerous leaps.
