One of the most haunting pieces of classical music composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695) is �Dido�s Lament: When I am laid in earth� from his opera �Dido and Aeneas�. This new score of �Dido�s Lament� is an arrangement for violoncello and organ and utilizes the somber timbre of both instruments to produce an evocative and beautiful piece that may be suited for a variety of occasions, such as traditional concerts, remembrance services or funerals. The full score and cello parts are available for purchase. Please note that the second section of the cello part (in the tenor range) may be played an octave lower for less accomplished cellists.
