Four ‘English’ Composers

Pur­cell, Han­del, Haydn and Mendelssohn… four com­posers who were pro­found­ly influ­enced by their life in Eng­land.

But only one of them was actu­al­ly born there (Pur­cell). How­ev­er, all four had a major impact on British clas­si­cal music, and today we’re fea­tur­ing pieces from all four of them.
