Henry Purcell

My beloved spake

You can freely and lawfully download a printable score for this Work from IMSLP - the Petrucci Music Library - though it may not be exactly the same as the one used to make the Midi Files below, and it probably won't be as good as a proper paid-for engraved and printed score.

There is an excellent performance of this Work by Gabrieli Consort under Paul McMreesh on YouTube starting here.

Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work. There are two versions. The first - "My beloved spake (as written)" - is slow and measured, and fairly strictly according to the dynamics and tempi given in the IMSLP Score mentioned above. The second - "My beloved spake (as performed)" - is much sprightlier, and more like the Gabrieli Consort performance mentioned above.

My beloved spake
UNemphasized Soprano  Alto  Tenor  Bass 
My beloved spake (as written) yes yes yes yes
My beloved spake (as performed) yes yes yes yes

That's the end of the Work.

And if something doesn't work properly, please let me know (see the "Comments" section of my Homepage).
