When Queen Mary died of smallpox late in 1694, Purcell wrote a series of pieces for her funeral, held in Westminster Abbey in March 1695. The Funeral Music for Queen Mary comprises an anthem, four profoundly bleak pieces for trumpets and trombones, and two elegies. That same year some of the music was used at Purcell's own funeral. His death at the early age of 36 was an immense loss to England and the musical world. His funeral, like Queen Mary's, was held at Westminster Abbey, with both the Chapel Royal choir and the Abbey choir in attendance, and he was laid to rest close by the organ at Westminster Abbey that he had spent years maintaining.
