John Blow is one of the greatest of not-quite-forgotten English composers. Conscripted as a choirboy from Newark Parish Church to the Chapel Royal of Charles II by the redoubtable Captain Henry Cooke-a royalist hero in the civil war, and one of the leading choir-trainers in his period-Blow rose to become a Gentleman (adult singer) of the Chapel and one of its three organists, and by his mid-twenties royal choirmaster. He was a famous teacher of composition, and specifically of old-fashioned counterpoint, a severe but hugely valuable discipline.

An ode is a secular lyric poem, often set musically, on a subject serving as an inspiration to the poet (or musician). The high level of accomplishment is consistent throughout, with the intermezzo instrumental sonatas offering a mix of fetching melody and vigorous continuo grouping, strong soloists, and a precise but never less than enthusiastic tone cultivated by Cohen.

Mark how the Lark and Linnet sing. So ceas'd the rival Crew when Purcell came. We beg not Hell, our Orpheus to restore. The Heav'nly Quire, who heard his Notes from High.
