1: The 17th Century. Since Charles I appointed Nicholas Lanier as the first Master of the King's Music in the mid-1620s, the post has been held by a surprising list of musicians - surprising as much for those who did not hold the office as for some of those that did. During the second half of the 17th century, the job did not actually entail doing most of the composing. This was left to the "composers in the private music". Music includes:
Purcell Sound Fame (Dioclesian)
Paul Agnew (tenor), English Concert, director Trevor Pinnock
Lanier The Marigold: Bring Away This Sacred Tree Emma Kirkby (soprano), David Thomas (bass), Consort of Musicke, director Anthony Rooley
John Banister The Musick at the Bath
