Henry Purcell (September 10, 1659 (?), –November 21, 1695, was an English Baroque composer. 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. His music inspired Michael Nyman's score to the British film The Draughtsman's Contract.
