Pathettical Stories, and Sublime Discourses

This description of viol consort music in seventeenth century England by musician and writer Thomas Mace hints at the range and depth of fantasias by composers such as John Jenkins, William Lawes, Thomas Tomkins, John Ward, Thomas Lupo and their contemporaries, including John Wilbye who was born 450 years ago in 1574. They also wrote dances and what Mace calls ‘Sweet Delightful Ayres ... Captivating all our Faculties’.
