Herbert Austin Fricker (1868-1943) was born in England, studied with Frederick Bridge and Edwin H Lemare, and served as city organist for Leeds. In 1917, he emigrated to Canada and was an active recitalist in Canada and the United States. A Purcell Suite is his collection of some of Purcell’s best known tunes from several sources arranged into a suite for organ. Perhaps the most widely recognized tune today is Movement IV, Rondeau, which is the basis for Britten’s “The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra,” which was subtitled, “Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell.” Moderate.
