Description:
During the Baroque era a musical piece known as a prelude generally served as an introduction to the main body of a musical work, while in the Romantic era a prelude might be a piece of music that stands alone. It often has a small number of rhythmic and melodic motifs that are embellished throughout the work.

This prelude by Henry Purcell, served as an introduction to his "Suite no. 5" for keyboard. It is largely written as a two-part contrapuntal piece, and other than some modulations into the dominant key of G major, remains in the home key of C major.
