11. K: King Arthur
Written by a British composer and covering the battles between the Britons and the Saxons, it’s hard to get more British than Purcell’s semi-opera, <i>King Arthur</i>. What’s more, its full title is <i>King Arthur or, The British Worthy</i>: a fine example of English Baroque music.
