Thomas Morley was organist of St. Paul's Cathedral, a Gent'eman of the Chapel Royal, author of a famous treatise A Plaine and Easie Introduction to Practicall Mustek , and one of the leading composers of the Elizabethan age. A pupil of Byrd, he was a highly skilled craftsman; his music, nevertheless, is characterised by lightness and grace. Besides madrigals and balletts, he published several sets of canzonets; the first, issued in 1593, has the title ' Canzonets or Little Short Songs to Three Voices.' Two years later came a ' First Book of Canzonets to Two Voices.' It is from these two books that the canzonets to be sung this evening are taken. Of the keyboard pieces, the first two are from the Fitzwihiam Virginal Book.
