Glory be to the father (Henry Purcell)
Gloria patri (Henry Purcell)
The composer was very interested in canons and included it often into his anthems. The singer has to find the sections which are not written. A dozen of pieces are isolated. He used the same text of doxology in Latin and in English. As the imitation is strict, it is easy to learn. This is a less well-known aspect of Purcell. Playful writing was fashionable at the baroque era.
