Tudor Music - Tudor Composers
Tudor Musicians composed music for musical instruments and the voice. The Tudor Golden Age saw the emergence of the Anthem, the Madrigal, the Masque and Opera. The emergence of new English music schools and great English Tudor Composers such as:

  • William Byrd (1543-1623)
  • Thomas Campion (1567-1620)
  • John Dowland (1563-1626)
  • John Farmer (1570-1601)
  • Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625)
  • Robert Johnson (1500-1560)
  • Thomas Tallis (1505-1585)

Combinations of Tudor musical instruments were still in the experimental stage but provided the opportunity to create unusual and creative music. The great Tudor monarchs such as King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I were patrons of all the Arts and encouraged Tudor Composers and Musicians. Music and Song lyrics were printed during the Tudor era but these were sold as separate documents. The Tudor composer John Dowland (1563-1626)  published his ' First Booke of Songes or Ayres' in 1597 that became a best seller and highly profitable to the Publisher. Other popular Tudor musicians and composers quickly followed suit.
