It is the second of four movements from his incidental music (Z 583) to Oedipus, a version of Sophocles' play by John Dryden and Nathaniel Lee, published in 1679

Henry Purcell (10th September 1659 – 21st November 1695), was an English composer of the Baroque period. He is generally considered to be one of England's greatest composers - indeed, he has often been called England's finest native composer. Purcell incorporated Italian and French stylistic elements, but devised a peculiarly English style of Baroque music.
