Composer : Morley, Thomas (1557 - 1602) Instrumentation : Style : Arranger : Publisher : Magatagan, Mike (1960 - ) Copyright : Public Domain Thomas Morley (1557-1602) was an English composer,
theorist, singer and organist of the Renaissance. He
was one of the foremost members of the English Madrigal
School. He was also involved in music publishing, and
from 1598 up to his death he held a printing patent (a
type of monopoly). He used the monopoly in partnership
with professional music printers such as Thomas East.
According to Philip Brett and Tessa Murray, Morley was
'chiefly responsible for grafting the Italian shoot on
to the native stock and initiating the curiously brief
but brilliant flowering of the madrigal that
constitutes one of the most colourful episodes in the
history of English music'.
Living in London at the same time as Shakespeare, he
became organist at St Paul's Cathedral. He was the most
famous composer of secular music in Elizabethan
England. He and Robert Johnson are the composers of the
only surviving contemporary settings of verse by
"Sing We and Chaunt It" is from the 1595 Balletts to

(SSATB). I created this arrangement for Woodwind
Quintet (Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, French Horn &
Bassoon). Source / Web : MuseScore Added by magataganm the 2017-11-10
