PREFACE. 



It is, I think, but fair and seemly, to express in the very forefront 
of these pages my most respectful gratitude to the Queen's 
Majesty for allowing me to dedicate to her this work. It appears 
to me most fitting that these records, which in a sense are Royal 
Records, should go forth as it were under Royal protection and 
patronage. When we consider how much our beloved King and 
Queen, as also the Prince of Wales and other members of the 
Royal Family, do to foster and encourage the gentle Art of music, 
we should indeed as a nation be proud and heartened to have such 
rulers and patrons. 

I ought next to mention that these Records are published (and 
I fancy it is the first time that most of them have been brought 
under public notice) by kind permission of the Lord Chamberlain, 
which permission I value exceedingly. 

Having discharged these two most pleasing obligations, it now 
remains to consider briefly what the work really is. One has only 
to turn a few pages of the text to discover that we have here a 
collection of documents, arranged in chronological order and 
classified under the various reigns, all coming from the Lord 
Chamberlain's records, as now preserved in the Record Office. 
Those selected treat for the most part of the maintenance and 
ordering of musicians attached to the English Court, but we gather 
up by the way many details concerning their lives which ought to be 
of much interest to students of music and musical history. These 
records commence in 1460-1, and are carried up to Michaelmas, 
1700. It was thought that such date would be a convenient 
stopping-place ; had investigations been carried further it would 
have made too bulky a volume, and this is more than sufficient for 
a first instalment. 

It may be interesting to give some little account of the 
inception of such an undertaking, and the reasons which led to 
publication. The idea was first set in motion by Mr. Hardy, a 



viii PREFACE. 



well-known and able authority on all that concerns antiquarian 
subjects. We went to the Record Office, and looked at some volumes 
of the Lord Chamberlain's accounts, and thereby gained some idea 
of what the task really meant. As I had not sufficient leisure, 
Mr. Hardy undertook the searching of the various volumes for any 
entries pertaining in any degree whatsoever to matters of music, 
and much time elapsed before this could be finished. However, 
at its completion, a small and friendly dinner was arranged at which 
a small committee met (a good deal of the business of Englishmen 
seems to be accomplished at dinners), and we afterwards adjourned 
to Mr. Hardy's offices in the vicinity of Chancery Lane, and 
surveyed the formidable mass of type-written slips which met 
our alarmed gaze. Various suggestions were made, all of them 
having as basis the absolute gain that there would be to musical 
history by the publication of facts selected out of this monument of 
paper. It was resolved that we should meet again, and we did so 
on two occasions, at Sir Frederick Bridge's delightful old-world 
abode in Westminster Cloisters. A third meeting was held after 
some interval in Mr. Hill's rooms in Bond Street. From that time 
till now the work has been carried on by Miss Stainer, the 
daughter of Sir John Stainer, and myself. 

I daresay Miss Stainer would wish that her name should not be 
mentioned, but I regard her as so intimately associated with this 
work that I am impelled to speak of her labours on its behalf. 
Fearing that any errors might have crept into the copied slips, 
Miss Stainer re-examined (a formidable task) the whole of the 
documents ; she also revised all the proofs, and they were after- 
wards subjected to a second revision (if necessary) at my hands ; 
she further compiled the index, her only assistance being a rough 
form I sent to her, and which served as a basis. Out of this 
rough copy she had to evolve an alphabetical sequence, and at 
the same time to add the descriptions of the posts held by the 
various musicians. I can unhesitatingly say that had it not been 
for Miss Stainer's valuable aid, this work would never have been 
brought to a satisfactory conclusion. I therefore take this opportunity 
of expressing my obligation to her, not only for so aiding me, but also 
for rendering — and I think all will confess she has so done — signal 
service to musical literature. 

I cannot say how many times I have turned and re-turned the 
leaves of the text, sometimes with a sense of disappointment that 



PREFACE. ix 



information was here so meagre, sometimes with a sense of thank- 
fulness that such a detail or such an event was there brought to 
light. It seems to me that the work cannot be without effect on 
our musical history ; it opens out many possibilities for the musical 
historian, and gives indeed at times curious sidelights on the doings 
at Court and in the town during the Tudor and Stuart reigns. But 
during this frequent thumbing of the page, I thought it might be an 
aid if I collected certain particulars and classified them under the 
individuals to whom they belonged. I know from experience that 
it is very convenient to have everything "sous main," and much 
loss of time and temper may be avoided by this expedient. Hence 
the notes that I have written on certain musicians, and placed at 
the end of the text. Of course they bear a very small proportion to 
the whole number, and they mostly concern only leading names, 
so far at least as our present knowledge is concerned. In looking 
through the various volumes of Grove's " Dictionary of Music " we 
find but few of the names that are met with in these records, and 
in many instances, as I have premised, the information in our text 
will not help us to knowledge. This is matter requiring research, 
painstaking and accurate, whilst it is also possible that no particulars 
now exist of many of these old-time worthies. All I can do is 
in the main to present the skeleton ; and though before it leaves 
my hands it has begun to put on flesh, such flesh must grow 
and acquire firm consistency by others' labours, and it is for the 
skilful and experienced to impart the breath of life. In the notes 
on Masques I have given many particulars respecting the Whitehall 
masque of 1674, as it is a prominent feature in the actual text, and 
it was, I believe, the last of these entertainments given at the 
English Court. I would fain see a revival of such artistic pro- 
ductions in these days, and many of our noble families might 
thereby give a great impetus to the poetic and melodic tastes of the 
painters and musicians now amongst us. The notes on Costume 
are somewhat meagre, but I have only inserted these as an 
explanation of many words that have passed out of use ; to my 
thinking, the most interesting is the note which treats of the livery 
or actual clothing given to musicians. " Originally ' livery ' meant 
the allowance in provisions and clothing made to the servants and 
officers of great households, whether of baron, prelate, monastery 
or college. Certain survivals of livery in this original sense still 
linger in the rations supplied to Fellows in the colleges of the 



x PREFACE. 



older universities. The term was gradually restricted to the gift of 
clothing as a badge of service and of protection." In the notes 
on references in the text, I have collected together various items, 
a sort of literary hotch-potch. But these, if carefully looked over, 
will show of how many matters these records treat ; and how, from 
being essentially musical at a first point of view, they branch off 
into tributaries which may be pursued with infinite profit and 
amusement. 

The Index has been subjected to many revisions, and I hope 
will be found correct ; but it is quite possible that errors may still 
exist. . If any should be discovered, I trust the hypercritical mind 
will look on them with gentleness, though I am not of those who 
look on honest criticism as an unmixed evil. Stinging as it at 
times may be, it acts, when taken at its proper value, as an 
educator and an incentive to more painstaking and accurate work. 
I have in some few instances in the Index enclosed certain of the 
references in brackets, meaning thereby either that I regard it as 
doubtful whether such references apply to the names under which 
they occur, or that they may be set down to two persons of the 
same name. 

It is well to bear in mind in reading the text that the Chapel 
Royal establishment was mainly connected with the Palace at 
Whitehall, as, from the time of Henry VIII. to the reign of William 
and Mary, Whitehall was the principal residence of the Sovereign. 
The Chapel Royal, as a building, was destroyed in the great fire 
which raged in the Royal buildings at Whitehall in 1698, and 
William III. then removed to St, James's Palace. The Chapel 
Royal at St. James's Palace had been for a considerable period 
used as a guard-room, but on the accession of Charles I. it was 
furnished anew for Divine Service. 

The following note, taken from Delaune's " Angliae Metropolis " 
(1690), may be useful in setting forth somewhat of the composition 
of the Chapel Royal establishment in those days : " By the Dean 
are chosen all the other officers of the Chapel — 32 Gentlemen of the 
Chappell, where 12 are Priests ; the other twenty, commonly called 
Clerks of the Chappell, are to perform, with the said Priests, the 
office of praying, singing, etc. One of these, being well-skilled in 
music, is chosen Master of the Children, whereof are 12 in ordinary, 
to instruct them in the Rules and Arts of Musick, for the Service of 
the Chappell ; 8 others are chosen to be organists, to whom is 



PREFACE. xi 



joined, upon solemn Days, a 'Consort' of the King's Musick, to 
make the musick more full and compleat." It links us on to those 
dear old days when we reflect that the Children of the Chapel 
Royal still have their livery from the Great Wardrobe — unless any 
change, of which I have not heard, has been made lately. 

Dr. Rimbault, writing in 1893, gives the strength of the 
Chapel Royal staff as 9 Gentlemen, 10 Children, a Serjeant and 
Yeoman of the Vestry, a Groom of the Vestry, an Organist who is 
also Composer, and an Organ-blower. The posts of violist and 
bell-ringer have been abolished. It was the duty of the bell-ringer 
to attend at the Chapel at every stated hour of prayer, and to go 
round a certain part of the Palace with his handbell, in order to give 
notice that the time for Divine Service was approaching. 

It will be observed that these records are in the commencement 
merely lists of names, and though these have their value, yet their 
frequent reiteration is apt to become monotonous. But as we go on 
these tiny rivulets broaden out like an ever-increasing stream, and in 
the voluminous details which mark the reign of Charles II. we are 
in full flood, and on our way to the open sea of clear knowledge. 
May the frail barque which we have launched on this stream, in the 
shape of our own small labours, ride to a haven of safety, there 
to encounter many nobler vessels that will bring rich stores of 
light and learning to create another chapter of our nation's history.

Will (dated as above) translated out of the French, and

dwelling in the city of London : 

He desires that he may be buried in Somerset Chappell, in 
which he served the deceased Queen Mother, Henrietta Maria 
of France, mother of the now King of England, as musick 
master for the space of forty years. " If this cannot be done, 
that at least it may be according to the ordinary rites of the 
catholiques in this country, charging and commanding my 
beloved wife, Anne Basile, whome I name executrix of this my 
last will, to cause a hundred masses to be said for the rest of 
my soul as soon as she can, according to the pious use of all 
those who dye in the faith of the Roman Catholique Church, 
from the which I will not be separated neither in life or death." 

He leaves his entire estate to his wife Anne Basile, and 

" seeing God hath given me authority over my children which 

shall remain alive, I command unto all of them to honour their 

mother after my death and to give her more respect than during 

my life, and to help her in all her necessities as children well 

educated ought to do." Also that they shall live in perfect 

union and intelligence one amongst another, and forbidding 

them upon any pretext to dispute this his last will and 

testament.

NOTES ON MUSICIANS AND OTHER 

PERSONAGES MENTIONED IN 

THESE RECORDS. 



Abell, John. — A celebrated alto singer, and performer on the 
lute. In 1679 he is appointed in place of Antony Roberts, at a 
salary of £40 per annum. On p. 355 we learn that he took the 
place of Alphonso Marsh for the lute and voice, and the place of 
Richard Dornye for the violin. In 1686 he is paid £10 for a guitar 
bought by him for use in James the Second's bedchamber. In 1688 
he is commanded, with Mr. Pedley, to attend the King in his pro- 
gresses. Grove says he was dismissed from the Chapel Royal in 
1688 on account of his Romanism. 

Albrigi, Vincent. — Composer and organist, born at Rome in 
1631. He was at one time in the service of Christina, Queen of 
Sweden. He then went to Dresden, and in 1682 he was sum- 
moned to a post at Prague. He, together with two others of his 
family, is only mentioned once in these records, and that is on the 
occasion of being awarded by Charles II. three gold chains and 
medals for himself and company. Concerning such gifts, there 
is a note in Hawkins' History of Music to the following effect : — 
" A golden medal and chain was the usual gratuity of princes to 
men of eminence in any of the faculties. It seems that the medal 
and chain once bestowed as a testimony of family favour was ever 
after a part of the dress of the person thus honoured, at least on 
public occasions." The name of Albrei, or Albreis, which occurs 
in the reign of James II., looks much akin to Albrigi, but it seems 
very doubtful whether the same family is intended. 

Baltzar, Thomas. — Grove mentions that he was born at Liibeck 
in 1630, and that he was the finest violinist of his time, and the 
first really great performer heard in England. In the list of 



44° 



NOTES. 



musicians of 1660 he is entered as having a "a new place." In 
1661 he is paid £34 : 13 : 4 for two violins bought by him for the 
King's service. In 1661 he is appointed violinist in the private 
music, at a salary of {110 yearly. In 1662 he is paid £6 : 13 : 4 
for strings for one year, also in 1663. In 1667, Thomas Fitz is 
appointed in his place, and at the same rate of payment, such pay- 
ment to commence from the June quarter-day. On p. 207 we read 
" Thomas Fitz succeeds one Mr. Baltzar, the Swede.'" 

Banister, John. — An English violinist of considerable repute, 
born in the year 1630. In the lists given by these records for 1660 
and 1661 "vacatur" is written against his name. In April, 1662, 
he is to have the ordering and direction of twelve violinists attending 
Charles II. to Portsmouth " or elsewhere, for the reception of 
his dearest consort the Queen." In the same year he is 
mentioned as succeeding Davies or Daniel Mell, at a salary of 
£110 yearly. In October of this year, he is paid £40 for two 
Cremona violins for the King's service. On p. 159 we find his 
name, in conjunction with Matthew Lock and George Hudson, as 
a composer. In August, 1663, he is appointed to choose twelve out 
of the regular company of twenty-four violinists to form a select 
band to wait on the King, and for this service, and considering the 
smallness of the present wages, he and the twelve are to receive the 
magnificent sum of £600 yearly, this regal payment to commence 
on the March quarter-day, 1662, so that he at once draws more than 
sufficient for a present comfortable maintenance, provided the 
money is regularly paid. On p. 182 we can see the names of the 
full band of violinists " which was made choyce of by Mr. Banister 
and appointed by the Lord Chamberlain," and they are twenty-six 
in number. In 1666 the sum of £464 is paid to Banister and seven 
others for riding charges and etceteras, the riding occupying the 
space of 232 days, and extending to Oxford and Hampton Court. 
In the same year he and the seven receive some further £140 by 
way of an advance " to fitt and enable them to attend the Queene to 
and at Tunbridge." In 1666 — and this was a knock-down blow for 
Banister — there is the order that Mr. Banister and the twenty-four 
violinists shall obey the directions of Mons. Louis Grabu, master of 
the private music. In 1666-7, to crown the indignity which he 
considered was put upon him, Grabu takes his place at the head of 
the select band of violinists, still twelve in number, and therefore 
the £600 passes to Grabu. In 1668 Banister is still in the 



NOTES. 441 



company of the twenty-four violinists, and his so continuing was 
doubtless a matter of pecuniary necessity, for in 1668-9 ne ^ s P ut 
down as having a yearly salary of £110. In 1674 we find him 
playing under the leadership of Mons. Combert. He seems never 
to have recovered from the misfortunes which overtook him through 
the advent of foreigners, and in May of 1679 we notice that leave to 
travel for six months or longer is granted to him. On p. 336 comes 
the brief notice " Obiit. 3 Oct., 1679." In November of the same 
year he is succeeded by his son. There are some very interesting 
particulars respecting Banister and his fall from favour in Sir 
Frederick Bridge's excellent little work on Pepys and his musical 
friends. Pepys himself says that Banister "was furious at the 
advent of Grabu." 

Bartholomew, Mr. — In Evelyn's Diary, under date Nov. 20, 
1679, he writes : " I din'd with Mr. Slingsby, Master of the Mint, 
with my wife, invited to hear musiq, which was exquisitely 
performed by four of the most renowned masters," and amongst 
these he enumerates, " Signor Bartolomeo, an Italian, on the 
harpsichord." On Feb. 7, 1682, he writes, " My daughter Mary 
began to learn musick of Signor Bartolomeo." And on March 10, 
1685, when his daughter was sick of the smallpox, referring to her 
death on the 14th, he says : " She had an excellent voice, to which 
she play'd a thorough bass on the harpsichord, in both which she 
arrived at that perfection, that of the schollars of those two famous 
masters Signiors Pietro and Bartolomeo she was esteem'd the best." 

Batten, Adrian. — A lay-vicar of Westminster Abbey, at the 
time of the death of James I. He was afterwards vicar-choral of 
S. Paul's, and organist, jointly with John Tomkins. This was in 
the time of Laud. He is said to have composed seven services and 
fifty anthems. 

Beaupuis, Mr. — A famous French opera-singer, who made his 
"debut" under the direction of Lulli in 1672. He seems to have 
been specially engaged for the masque at Whitehall in 1674. 

Birde, William. — Mentioned as being at the funeral of Queen 
Elizabeth, and his name occurs amongst the household of Queen 
Anne, wife of James I. There is reference to an anthem by Bird, 
" O God, the proud," on p. 306. The Thomas Byrd mentioned on 
pp. 5 and 7 is evidently the father of this worthy, who is described 
in the Cheque Book as " William Bird, a Father of Musick." 



442 



NOTES. 



Blow, John. — On p. 120 he is spoken of as " Master of his 
Majesty's musick," although on p. 178 he is described as being still 
under the tutelage of Captain Cooke, but it will be noticed that the 
date given to the former reference is queried as being evidently not 
quite trustworthy. In 1668-9 Blow is appointed to the virginalls 
in place of Giles Tompkins. In the list of those who attended at 
Windsor in 1671 he is mentioned twice as organist (p. 236). On 
July 23, 1674, he is appointed Master of the Children and composer 
in the -King's private music for voices in the place of Pelham 
Humfryes. On p. 288 he is said to have succeeded Captain Cooke 
in private musick for the voices. On pp. 305 to 307 we find in 
a long list of services and anthems Blow's Services in A and G, and 
his Benedicite, and the anthems, " Turn thou us," " Behold how 
good," " O Lord I have sinned," " Lord how are they increased," 
" O how amiable," "God is our hope," "O God wherefore art 
thou absent," and " Save me O God." In 1676 he is paid £143 
for, " inter alia," charges and expenses for going to Windsor, 
Oxford, Gloucester, Hereford, and Worcester, to fetch boys for the 
quires for the King's Chapel, and for nurse and chamber rent and 
firing for one of the Children who was sick of the spotted fever 
(p. 312) ; and in 1677 there is amongst his charges an item " For the 
cure of a broaken legg of one of the Children " (p. 327). On p. 372 we 
have him as Composer under James II., and in 1689 he is still Master 
of the Children, "they being tenn in number." He is further 
mentioned during the reign of William and Mary (p. 399), and 
in 1695 is appointed with Bernard Smith tuner of virginalls and 
wind instruments in place of Henry Purcell. He and Smith are 
to share the place between them and the survivor is to enjoy 
the whole benefit. On p. 425 it is stated that he is appointed 
to the virginalls in place of Giles Tompkins, though this has 
already been mentioned on p. 211, nearly thirty years previously, 
so this may be a confirmation of the previous appointment, or a 
discrepancy, of which these records afford various instances. We 
leave him on p. 437 still alive. Pepys mentions in his Diary 
that Blow went with Loggins, who is mentioned on pp. 191 
and 194, to sing in his presence, and Pepys was not at all pleased 
with their broken voices. The Cheque Book says, " Dr. John Blow, 
Organist, Composer in ordinary to His Majesty, and Master of 
the Children, dyed Oct. 1st, 1708, and had his full pay for both 
places to Xmas." 



NOTES. 443 



Bower, Richard. — The Household Book of Edward VI. has 
the following entry : " To Richard Bower, for playing before the 
King's Majestie with the Children of the Chappell, in rewarde, 
\]li. xiijs. iiijrf." (This means a payment of £6 : 13 : 4.) Bower 
probably succeeded William Crane as Master of the Children, and 
his tombstone in old Greenwich Church recorded that he was 
Master under Henry VIII., Edward VI., Mary, and Elizabeth. 

Braddock, Edward. — The Cheque Book of the Chapel Royal 
mentions that he was Clerk of the Cheque from 1689 to 1706. 
Canon Sheppard in his " Memorials of S. James' Palace " mentions 
that the office of serjeant and yeoman of the vestry and that of 
clerk of the cheque were originally held by the same person, and 
that the two former are now held by one person, while the office of 
clerk of the cheque is joined to that of the sub-dean. Dr. Rimbault 
says that the duties of the clerk were to keep an account of the 
attendance and to note the absence of the priests and gentlemen, 
to attend all admissions into Chapel appointments and to keep a 
record of the same. No salary was attached to the office, but there 
were certain fees. It is possible that this is the Mr. Braddock, 
whose daughter, Elizabeth, was married to Dr. Blow, also that 
Hugh Braddock, mentioned as a Child of the Chapel, is Edward 
Braddock's son. 

Bridges, Paul Francis. — In the Calendar of State Papers 
(Domestic Series) we find in 1660 the entry: " Francis Bridges. 
For appointment as Musician to the Chamber and Chapel, having left 
his service at Brussels on His Majesty's promise to that effect " — 
also " Certificate by the Earl of Worcester and six others that Paulus 
Franciscus Bridges, musician to the King of Spain at Brussels, often 
brought his companions to play for the King, or played for him 
alone, and has left his service to serve him in England." On p. 169 
of these records there is an account paid to Mr. Perkins in Hatton 
Grounds for lodging " Mr. Briges of the musique" at 5/- per week, 
and on p. 207 his yearly salary in the private music is stated to 
be £56 : 2 : 6. In 167 1 a widow, Sarah Glascock, is to take her 
course at law against Bridges for a debt of £10, unless it be paid 
within a month. In 1673 he surrenders his place to John Young, 
this to take effect from June 24. 

Cambert, or Combert, Mons. — Cambert was organist of 
S. Honore in Paris, as well as " sur-intendant de la musique " to 



444 NOTES. 



Anne of Austria. About the year 1672 he was driven out of France 
by the machinations of Lulli, and it is recorded by French 
authentics that he was appointed " sur-intendant " of music at the 
Court of Charles II. Favoured by this monarch, he produced one of 
his operas, " Pomone," here, but with indifferent success. It 
is reported that he died of grief and vexation in 1677. His death is 
thus accounted for by Bourdelot in "L'Histoire de la Musique 
et ses Effets." " It was the spirit of envy, a not unknown companion 
to merit, that shortened his days. The English do not care for a 
foreigner to interfere with their own amusements, much less to 
instruct them. This poor fellow therefore died in England a little 
sooner than he would have died elsewhere." 

Chevalier, Thomas. — A member of the chamber-music under 
Henry IV. and Louis XIII. of France, he is said to have been one 
of the most skilful composers of instrumental music, more 
especially of music for the ballet. 

Child, William. — In the year 1660 he takes Alphonso Ferra- 
bosco's place. On p. 119 those curious in such matters may 
see a detailed account of the materials for his actual livery. On 
p. 123 he is mentioned as taking the place of Clement Lanier, 
deceased, for the cornet. In 1664 we find him in the place of 
Henry Ferabosco, also deceased (p. 169). In 1670 he has a 
petition against the rest of his fellows for detaining six and a half 
years' board wages on the pretence of his not attending the 
service. On p. 269 he is mentioned as organist. On p. 295 we 
note that he has written from Windsor asking that the rest of his 
livery may be paid to the bearer, a certain serjeant Haynes. On 
pp. 305 to 307 he figures as composer of a Benedicite, an Evening 
Service in G, a Te Deum to his Benedicite, a Service in E flatt, 
a Service in A re, and the following anthems: "O pray for the 
peace of Jerusalem," " The earth is the Lord's," " Thou art my 
King," " O let my mouth be filled," " Behold how good and joyful," 
" Let God arise," " O sing unto the Lord," and " O Lord, rebuke 
me not." On p. 317 Thomas Haynes, Serjeant of the King's 
Vestry, is mentioned again, this time as his true and lawful attorney. 
The last notice of him in these records is the appointing (because 
the faithful Thomas Haynes is now dead) of Edward Bradocke, 
gentleman, of Westminster, as his true and lawful attorney. This 
is in the year 1690 ; he is supposed to have died in 1697, and was

evidently blessed with a good constitution, as Grove gives the date 
of his birth as 1606. [As mention has been made here of a Serjeant 
of the Vestry, it may not be out of place to consider the duties 
which attached to that office. As to this particular individual, the 
Cheque Book says that Thomas Haines was sworn Serjeant in 
1685 and that he departed this life in 1687. The Cheque Book 
mentions the following as the daily duties of the Serjeant — To open 
the vestry, to keep it clean, to assist the Sub-dean in putting on his 
surplice, to walk before the Dean, Bishops, and Sub-dean with his 
virge, and to place the velvet cover on the lesson desk. On 
Sundays and holy days to put the white linen cover on the com- 
munion table, and to mark the places in the Prayer Book. He is 
also to provide new books and surplices, and to attend to the 
washing of the surplices. When new surplices are ordered he is 
to procure from the Great Wardrobe the finest and best holland 
allowed, and to cause two to be made for each gentleman, each 
marked with the initials of the name, and he is to take special care 
that the surplices are long and large enough and fit in the 
neck.] 

Clarke, Jeremiah. — A chorister under Blow, he was afterwards 
the original composer of the music to Dryden's Ode "Alexander's 
Feast." He was associated with Henry Purcell in writing music for 
various operas. So far as these records are concerned, he is only 
mentioned as having a livery on leaving the Chapel Royal, but a 
note on p. 427 says that even in this particular a mistake has been 
made, and that the name of Townsend must be substituted for that 
of Clarke, though on p. 400 Townsend is stated to be leaving the 
Chapel in 1690, and the livery alluded to above is of the date 
1697. Probably there was some carelessness in making out these 
accounts. 

Coleman, Dr. Charles. — Chamber musician to Charles I. 
After noting the appearance of his name twice in lists of musicians 
belonging to the Court of Charles I., we find that in 1660 he was 
appointed for a " viall " in Mr. Thomas Ford's place (p. 114). 
Dr. Coleman's son, also named Charles, seems to have been 
appointed with his father to share Ford's place. In 1662 he (the 
Doctor) is paid £10 for a viol, by him sold and delivered for the 
King's service. In Nov., 1662, he is appointed in the place 
of Henry Lawes as composer. In July, 1664, Henry Cooke is 



446 NOTES. 



appointed, at Dr. Coleman's decease, to take his place, with 
apparently the same wages, £40, to commence from June 24, 1664. 
In the next year Charles Coleman is appointed to succeed his father, 
appointment to date from Sept. 29, 1664. 

Coleman, Charles, Junr. — In Sept., 1672, he is admitted as 
musician for the viol in the private music, and his name may be 
noted as being amongst the base violls for the Mask of 1674. In 1685 
he is still occupying the same position, and in 1689 he is appointed 
to the private music under William and Mary. In 1694 one Robert 
Lewis takes his place, he being deceased, though his name is still 
retained in a list bearing date 1696. Grove places his death about 
1694, but adds that information as to his existence was advertised 
for in the London Gazette of April 12-15, J 697- Although, as will 
be seen, there are so many entries in these records with regard to 
this name, most of them give no further information than the 
including of his name in the several lists of Court musicians of 
the time. Neither the Doctor nor his son Charles are mentioned in 
the Cheque Book. 

Coleman, Edward. — Another son of Dr. Coleman. His wife, 
Mrs. Coleman, is mentioned by Pepys, and is said to have been one 
of the first actresses who appeared on the English stage. In 1660 
Edward is appointed in " the place of John Lanier for a voyce." 
In a list bearing date S. Andrew, 1669, " mort ante diem " is 
written against his name, and the Cheque Book says " Mr. Edward 
Coleman departed this life at Greenwich on Sunday, August 26, 
1669." 

Cook, Capt. Henry. — He first appears in these records in 1660, 
and is then enjoying the following emoluments : — £60 per annum 
for lute and voice (in place of Duvall), £10 per annum for strings, 
^"24 for " breeding " a boy for vocal music, and £10 each for two 
boys in quarterly payments from 1660 to 1672. His succeeding to 
Dr. Coleman's place has been before mentioned. He is first 
mentioned as Captain in the entry of April 6, 1661. He is to have 
the same livery as Thomas Day as Master of the Children, and the 
same as Duvall as musician in ordinary. On September 17, 1661, 
^19 : 10 : o is to be paid to him for the attendance of himself 
and the Children on the King at Windsor, and a further sum of 
£2 : 16 : o is to be paid for torches and lights used whilst practising 
the Coronation music. Later in the same year his name is

mentioned in connection with the materials for the clothing of the 
Children, their summer and winter liveries ; and there is a further 
sum of £45 to him for sums expended to masters during the space 
of one year in teaching the Children to write and to learn and to speak 
Latin. In 1662-3 thirteen Prayer Books are delivered to him for 
the use of the thirteen Children in the Chapel. In 1663 he is paid 
^"30 for the Children's learning of the violins and organ. In 1663-4 
he is paid £20 for yearly cost of firing for the music room at the 
Chapel, and for strings for the " base voyall " and other Chapel 
instruments. In 1664 he is paid £60 for " learning Latin" to the 
children and teaching them the lute and organ for nearly one year, 
also £10 for firing and strings for the half-year, £y for strings for 
virginals and lutes, £11:6:0 for coach hire and other expenses 
to Windsor and Canterbury. In 1665 he is paid £115 : 10 : 6 for 
having the Children taught Latin as well as to write, to play on the 
violin, organ, and lute; for stringing and penning their harpsi- 
chords ; for firing and strings ; for clothes for Michael Wise ; for 
going into the country and looking for boys, and for nursing three 
boys sick of the smallpox. In 1665 he is to be paid £40 yearly 
for the maintenance of Pelham Humphreys, £30 for John Blow, and 
£30 for John Blundivile. In 1666 thirteen more Praj'er Books are 
delivered to him for the Children, but in this instance the New 
Testament is bound in with the Prayer Book. In 1668-9 his yearly 
fees are mentioned as totalling £188. In 1669 there is an order to 
repair his lodgings at the further end of the Old Bowling Alley, 
Hampton Court, and for the erection of chimneys there. In 167 1 he is 
given a sum of money for, amongst other things, doctors' and nurses' 
fees ; for looking after several children when sick ; and for going to 
Westchester, Lichfield, Canterbury, and Rochester, to look for boys. 
In the same year he is paid £431 : 12 : o for the attendance at 
Windsor during May, June, and July, of the Gentlemen of the 
Chapel, the organist, and two base violists. A further account seems 
to show that the Children (now twelve in number) were at Windsor 
during all or part of this period. He departed this life on July 13, 
1672. His will, with its characteristically quaint provisions, will be 
found " in extenso " on pp. 245-6. He is immediately succeeded by 
one of his pupils, Pelham Humphreys. (Bumpus, in his " History 
of English Cathedral Music," says that his death was caused through 
jealousy of Humphreys.) In 1675 we have the certificate of his 
burial in the cloister at Westminster on July 17, 1672. From the 



448 NOTES. 



Cheque Book we learn that Cook acted as steward at the annual 
Chapel feast in 1663, but he only accepted the office on condition 
that it created no precedent, as he did not think it " meete or 
convenient for the Master of the Children to have that office." On 
May 28, 1666, in conjunction with Thomas Purcell and other 
Gentlemen of the Chapel, Cook petitioned " on behalf of themselves, 
the pages of the Chapel, and boys whose voices have changed, for 
payment, there being no money assigned to the Treasurer of the 
Chamber for that purpose." We may supplement this fact with a 
notice from Pepys' Diary bearing the date of Dec. ig, 1666. (Sir 
Frederick Bridge has already given this passage in his Pepysian 
volume, but it will bear repeating, especially in this context.) Pepys 
says, " Talked of the King's family with Mr. Hingston, the organist" 
(see " Hingston " in these notes). " He says many of the musique 
are ready to starve, they being years behindhand for their wages : 
nay, Evens, the famous man upon the Harp, having not his equal in 
the world" (he is mentioned in these records), " did the other day die 
from mere want." With regard to Pepys' appreciation of Cook, he 
writes in his Diary under date Sept. 14, 1662, "To White Hall 
Chapel, where sermon almost done, and I heard Captain Cooke's new 
musique — I could discern Capt. Cooke to overdo his part at singing, 
which I never did before " ; and on Dec. 21, 1663-4, ne writes, " To 
my Lord Sandwich's, where I find him with Capt. Cooke and his 
boys, Dr. Childe, Mr. Madge " (this would most likely be the 
Humphrey Madge of these records) " and Mallard, playing and 
singing over my Lord's anthem, which he hath made to sing in the 
King's Chapel." Pepys elsewhere states his opinion that Cook was 
a good singer, but a " vain coxcomb." Elias Ashmole says that at 
the festival of S. George at Windsor in 1661 "the hymn was 
composed and set with verse and chorus by Capt. Cook — by whose 
direction some instrumental loud musick was at that time introduced, 
namely, two double sackbuts and two double courtalls — one sackbut 
and courtal before the four petty canons who began the hymn, and 
the other two immediately before the prebends of the College." Cook 
in the Civil War was on the Royalist side, and obtained a captain's 
commission. We have a glimpse of the Captain during the 
Commonwealth in Evelyn's Diary, as follows : — " Nov. 28, 1654. 
Came Lady Langham, a kinswoman of mine, to visit us ; also one 
Captain Cooke, esteem'd ye best singer after the Italian manner of 
any in England ; he entertained us with his voice and theorba." 



NOTES. 449 



Corbett, Mr. Frasico. — Francesco Corbetti was born at Pavia 
about 1630. The Duke of Mantua sent him to Louis XIV., and 
from the French Court he came to England. Charles II. appointed 
him to an office in the Queen's Household, and it is said even 
provided him with a wife. He was esteemed to be the best guitarist 
of his time, and it may be noted that he appeared in the Whitehall 
Mask of 1674. He eventually returned to France. 

Cornysh, William. — The second known Master of the Children 
of the Chapel. It is said that he had some renown as a poet, and 
that he was a great favourite of King Henry VIII. Under 
Cornish's direction the Gentlemen of the Chapel were accustomed to 
act plays before the King and Court. In 1504 he was committed 
to the Fleet prison, but afterwards came again into Royal favour. 

Crane, William. — Crane succeeded Cornish in the Mastership. 
In the Household Book of Henry VIII. we have an entry similar 
to the one referred to under "Bower": — "to Maister Crane, for 
playing before the king with the children of the chappell, in rewarde, 
vjV/. xiijs. iiijrf." In a book of Receipts and Payments of the 
Exchequer, 18 Henry VIII., he is mentioned as "Will? Crane, 
Magister Puerorum Capellae Dom. Regis." 

Cutting, Thomas.— Cutting was an excellent performer on the 
lute. In 1607 he was in the service of Lady Arabella Stuart, 
but she, at the instance of Ann, wife of James I., and sister of 
Christian IV. of Denmark, sent him to Denmark to replace 
Dowland. Cutting stayed in Denmark but little more than four 
years, for he appears as being in the service of Henry, Prince of 
Wales, in 1611. 

Davies, Mrs. — Mary Davis, sometime comedian in the Duke 
of York's company of players, is the Moll Davis so frequently 
alluded to by Pepys. She seems to have been noted as a singer, 
and appeared in the Masque of 1674, as Father Thames in the 
prologue, and as Sylvia in the pastoral scenes. Her attainments as a 
dancer are thus referred to by the celebrated diarist : — " 1666-7, 
March 7. To the Duke's playhouse. — Little Miss Davis did dance 
a jigg after the end of the play, and then telling the next day's play, 
so that it come in by force only to please the company to see her 
dance in boy's clothes." And again : — " 1667. August 5. Miss 
Davis, dancing in a shepherd's clothes, did please us mightily." 



45Q NOTES. 



Eagles, Solomon. — According to Grove, this strange character 
was born in 1618, and was noted as a teacher of the virginals and 
viols. About 1660 he became a Quaker, broke his instruments, 
burned them, together with his music books, and turned shoemaker. 
There seems to be no direct evidence to connect this individual, 
despite his fanaticism, with the crazy prophet who has been immor- 
talized by Ainsworth in his account of the great Fire of London, 
although there are undoubted points of similarity. The only 
information we gain from these records is that in 1693 he was in 
debt to the amount of ^"400, and that in 1700 a certain Solomon 
Eccles (a glance at the various references will show that the name 
Eccles and Eagles seems to describe one and the same person) was 
still amongst the Court musicians. There is one Eagles mentioned 
in the 1674 Masque, and this is more likely to have been Solomon than 
Henry, though one cannot pronounce with certainty. If the date 
given in Grove for Solomon's death — viz., 1683, be correct, then we 
are confronted with a difficulty, and can only suppose that Eccles 
and Eagles must be separately identified, but it is not easy to discern 
any break in the continuity. Solomon's eldest son, John, here set 
down as John Eccles, was appointed Master of the Musick in 1700, 
and Henry, his second son, also had a place amongst the Court 
musicians. 

Eveseede, Mr. (See Oveseede, in Index). — Mr. Henry Eveseede 
is set down in the Cheque Book as one of the Yeomen of the Vestry. 
He is dismissed, after his petition being considered, " for a foule 
disease in his groine," for drunkenness, for blasphemy, and for 
actual violence, in 1620-1. "On S. Peter's Day last, beinge the 
day of our feast — Mr. Eveseed did violently and sodenly without 
cause runne upon Mr. Gibbons, took him up and threw him down 
upon a standard wherby he received such hurt that he is not 
yet recovered from the same." A " standard " was a large 
chest generally used for holding plate, &c, but sometimes for 
linen. 

Ferabosco, Alphonso. — It seems doubtful whether this is the 
eldest Ferabosco who was in this country, as Grove says that he 
left England in 1578, whereas the first notice in these records of 
this Alphonso is in the year 1603. Fetis makes the following 
remarks on the earlier Ferabosco. " He was born in Italy about 
1515, and appears to have established himself in England about 



NOTES. 451 



1540. Amongst the English writers there is a misty uncertainty as 
to the actual residence of this musician in England, and they are 
not even of one mind as to the orthography of his name." In our 
records, in 1627, another Alfonso is mentioned as succeeding his 
father, whilst Henry Ferabosco also appears as a brother of the 
second Alfonso, and there is a note on p. 63 to the effect that 
the father having had a musician's, a composer's, a violl's and an 
instructor's place to the Prince of Wales, the benefit of these places 
descends to his sons by the King's special grant. In 1630 there is 
a warrant for a livery for John Ferabosco, and on p. 78 we have all 
three brothers mentioned, Alfonso for the violin, Henry for the 
voices, and John for the wind instruments. John last appears on 
p. 107, in the years 1641-2, and Grove says that he was appointed 
organist of Ely Cathedral in 1662. Alfonso seems to have 
surrendered his place before 1660, and Henry is in that year spoken 
of as already deceased. On p. 127 we have the entry, "Thomas 
Bates, in the place of Alphonso Ferabosco, junr, which his father, 
Alfonso Ferabosco, enjoyed as instructor to his late majesty 
(Charles I.), when Prince of Wales, £50 per annum, and in the 
place of Henry Ferabosco, deceased, £40 more." 

Finger, Mr. — A Moravian, who came to England in 1685. He 
appears in these records in the years 1687 and 1688. In 1693 he 
composed the music for Parsons' Ode to S. Cecilia. The London 
Gazette for Feb. 1 of that year makes the following announcement : 
" At the Consort in York Buildings on Monday next the 5th inst., 
will be performed, Mr. Finger's St. Cecilia's Song, intermixed with 
a variety of new musick, at the ordinary rates." In 1702 Finger 
received the appointment of Chamber musician to Sophia Charlotte, 
Queen of Prussia. 

Fitz, Theophilus.) On p. 315 these two musicians are men- 
Fitz, Thomas. Jtioned as "Fitz the elder" and "Fitz the 
younger," and they seem to have followed each other so closely 
during their lives that they may well be included in one notice. As 
violinist under Charles II., Theo. (it will be a convenience to shorten 
their names) has 1/8 per diem, besides his livery. On p. 124 Tom 
is described as musician of the violins in ordinary. In 1662, Theo. 
is amongst those attending on Charles II. to receive the Queen, and 
in 1664 he is to attend at His Majesty's Theatre, with others, when- 
ever required by Mr. Killigrew. In 1665 he is appointed to the post 



452 NOTES. 



of double sackbutt, and in the same year we find him in Banister's 
company of violinists. In 1666 he is ordered to attend the Queen at 
Tunbridge. In 1666-7 he is transferred from Mr. Banister to Mons. 
Grabu. In 1667 he is appointed with another to " wait " during the 
allowed absence of Henry Comer, and in the same year he is to 
attend with three others at the Chapel Royal, Whitehall, whenever 
Captain Cook should so require. In this year also Tom is appointed 
to the violins in the private musick in the place of Baltzar. In 1668 
he takes Richard Hudson's place — a place for life — with a fee of 
^46:12:8. In 1669 he is paid ^"21:10:0 for riding charges in 
attending Charles II. at Newmarket, Bagshot, Portsmouth, and 
Audley End. In 1670 they are both to attend at the Chapel, and 
in the same year Tom is amongst the twenty-four violinists who 
attended the King at Dover for twenty days. In 1674 the two are 
to be paid ^"24 for two violins bought by them for the Chapel. In 
the same year Theo. with five others is in attendance on the Queen 
at Hampton Court for thirty-six days, whilst at about the same time 
Tom is in attendance with six others on the King at Newmarket. 
They both figure amongst the violinists in the Mask of 1674, and 
in 1674-5 they are amongst those attending in the Chapel at 
Windsor for one-hundred-and-nine days. In 1675 " Mr. Fitzz " 
(this is evidently Theo.) is paid £12:10:0 for a " sagbutt." In 
1677 we hear of the death of Tom, and in this same year we find 
Theo. petitioning with others against their dismissal from the play- 
house by Mr. Killigrew, the Master of the Revels. In 1684-5 Theo. 
is to attend with others at the King's Theatre to practise music for 
a ball to be held there. In 1688 he is amongst those attending 
James II. to Windsor. In 1689 he is appointed to the private music 
under William and Mary. In 1693-4 John Godwin, of Westminster, 
bequeaths to Theophilus Fitzz, of Hampton, £5. In the year 1700 
we leave Theo. still living. 

Fleuri, Nicholas. — Fetis says that Francois Nicholas Fleuri 
was born about 1630, that he acquired remarkable skill on that 
difficult instrument, the theorbo; that in 1637 he entered the 
service of the Due d'Orleans, and in 1678 was still in the same 
service. There must, however, have been some break in this 
engagement, as we find him in England in 1663, as one of 
Charles II. 's French musicians in ordinary, and this is the only 
notice he has in these records. 



NOTES. 453 

Gamble, John — His first appearance in these records is in the 

year 1660. In 1661 a livery is allowed him against the King's 

coronation, and in 1662 he has the livery formerly granted to 

Jerome Lanier, now deceased. In 1666 the sum of £j is lent to 

him. In 1670 he is to attend in the Chapel with others, also in 

1671 and 1672. In 1671-2 he assigns to one Parrott his livery 

due out of the King's Great Wardrobe. In 1674 he is to practise 

with others under Mons. Combert in the theatre at Whitehall, 

and in the same year he is waiting on the King at Windsor from 

July n to Sept. 1. We find him named amongst the violinists 

in the Masque of 1674. In 1675-6 he assigns to J. Talcott, 

apothecary of Westminster, one debenture for livery due Nov. 30, 

1674. 1° 1676 he receives payment for attendance, with seven 

others, in the Chapel at Windsor from July 7 to Sept. 11, 1675. 

In 1676 there is a letter of assignment from John Gamble, of the 

Parish of S. Giles-in-the-Fields, appointing J. Spicer, of S. Martin's- 

in-the-Fields, his true and lawful attorney. He last appears in 

1686. Grove says he performed at one of the theatres, and was a 

cornet player in the Royal Chapel. 

Gibbons, Orlando. — This well-known character is mentioned as 
privy organist in the list of King James' household. In the same list 
is Dr. W. Heather, who took his Doctor of Music degree at the same 
time as Gibbons, and Gibbons is said to have written Heather's 
exercise as well as his own. Grove says that he married Elizabeth, 
daughter of J. Patten, Yeoman of the Vestry. He died in 1625. It is 
related that Henry Eveseed, a drunken Groom of the Vestry, did him 
serious hurt five years before his death, and he does not seem to have 
recovered well from the shock, which may have accelerated his end. 

Gibbons, Dr. Christopher. - This was the second son of 
Orlando, and he was born in 1615. In 1660 he is appointed to 
Warwick's place (Warwick had succeeded his father) for the 
virginals — " the virginall in the Presence" — and in the same year 
he is approved by the King at Baynards Castle, and it is ordered that 
an organ be built for him. In 1672 Dr. Gibbons and Mr. Pickering 
are to provide mourning for trumpeters, drummers, and fife at the 
funeral of Lord Sandwich. In 1676 C. Preston succeeds the Doctor, 
he being now deceased. Grove mentions that he was in the 
Royalist Army, and that, besides being organist of the Chapel 
Royal and private organist to the King, he was also organist of 
Westminster Abbey. 



454 NOTES. 



Giles, Nathaniel. — According to Antony a Wood, he was 
" noted as well for his religious life and conversation (a rarity in 
musicians) as for excellence in his faculty." His last entry in these 
records bears the date 1628. Grove says that the inscription on his 
grave at Windsor says that he was Master of the Children there for 
forty-nine years, and at the Chapel Royal (presumably at Whitehall) 
for thirty-eight years. 

Goslin, John. — He takes Mr. John Harding's place, and is 
mentioned as Clerk on p. 436. He was later appointed precentor 
of Canterbury, and Sub-dean of S. Paul's. Henry Purcell wrote 
the bass solos in his anthems for this noted singer. 

Grabu, Louis. — In the list of 1600 the name of Nicholas Lanier, 
Master, is crossed out, and Grabu's name inserted, and on p. 126 it 
is stated that Nicholas Lanier, Master of Musick, is dead, and that 
Grabu is Master in his place. In 1665 he is appointed composer in 
the King's music. (Many details concerning Grabu will be found 
under the name of Banister.) In Lanier's place he has ^200 per 
annum — this, with the ^600 taken from Banister, makes the 
respectable total of ^800 per annum ! In 1668 he is paid ^"165:9:6 
for " fayre writing severall dances, aires, and other musick," &c, 
&c. ; and in the same year he is to have the teaching of two boys, 
not, let us be sure, without due payment. He has also a yearly 
livery of £16 : 2 : 6 during the King's pleasure, and this is appa- 
rently in addition to the sums already mentioned. In 1671-2 he is 
paid ^"117 : 4 : 6 for "fayre writing and pricking severall sorts of 
musick," &c, at various times in 1668-9, and for other services. In 
the same year he has ^"20 for riding and other charges in attending 
the King to Dover during the space of twenty days in 1670. This 
he assigns, with another sum of £"137 : 4 : 6, to Walter Lapp, citizen 
and mercer of London, the same tradesman who, in 1647, made the 
wreaths for the King's musicians for the theatre at Whitehall. In 
1674 there is a warrant to deliver to Grabu, or his representative, the 
scenery from Whitehall for the use of the French opera in Bridges 
Street, the same to be returned after fourteen days. This bears date 
March 27, and on April 27 there is a warrant to deliver to Sir 
Christopher Wren, the King's Surveyor General of Works, the said 
scenery. In the list of 1674, against Grabu's name is written 
" vacatur," and Mr. Staggins is in his place. (From the course of 
events we can only suppose this to be an enforced and compulsory 



NOTES. 455 



resignation of his many emoluments, owing to the Royal countenance 
being turned against him.) In 1674-5 Mr. Staggins is to enjoy 
Grabu's ^200 per annum, commencing from September 29, 1674. 
In 1675 there is still a warrant to pay Grabu his livery, and in 
1676-7 certain violinists are ordered to practise some of his music, 
so his downfall was not a swift and sudden flight, but a little 
managed — " un peu adouci " expresses it. The real extent of 
his ill-luck can only be appreciated when we come to his pitiful 
petition on p. 317. In this he speaks of being a menial 
servant to the King, and asks for help for his distressed family, 
and to be kept from arrests. The King refers the whole petition 
to the Lord Chamberlain. This is in 1667, and in June of the 
same year Lord Arlington finds that there is due to Grabu out of 
the Exchequer the sum of ^450, out of the office of the Treasury 
Chamber, £145 : 4 : 6, and out of the Great Wardrobe £32 : 5 : o — 
making in all the sum of £"627 : 9 : 6, and he further finds that 
Grabu's condition is " very poor and miserable." (This seems one of 
the saddest histories we have to deal with in these records.) On 
the back of a document bearing the date, Dec. 8, 1687, in the reign 
of James II., there is a memorandum that " Mr. Grabu received all 
his arrears as master of the music to his late Majesty, although not 
actually in his said Majesty's service at the time of his decease," so 
that as Grabu passes from our sight we have the pleasant reflection 
that justice was after all rendered to this strangely-fortuned indi- 
vidual. Grove says that Grabu came to England in 1666, but these 
records point to an earlier date — also that in 1690 he composed the 
music to one of Beaumont and Fletcher's pieces, but according to 
the information given above, Grabu was in 1687 already regarded 
as dead. 

Greeting, Thomas. — He is appointed in 1662. He figures in 
the band of twenty-four violins of the time of Charles II. In 1673-4 
he is appointed to the violin and sackbut for the Chapel Royal 
at 2/4 " per diem." He is amongst the violinists in the Mask 
of 1674. In 1682 one Crouch takes his place. Grove mentions 
that he was a teacher of the flageolet, and that amongst his pupils 
were Mr. and Mrs. Pepys. 

Gualtier, Jacques.— In 1637 this musician is paid £10 for 
a treble lute to be used in masques. In 1660 we find that 
P. Rogers, also a lutenist, took his place, and as the said Rogers is

appointed at a salary of £100 per annum, we may infer that 
Gaultier received the same payment. Grove says that Denys 
Gualtier and Gaultier " le vieux" were the last two members of a 
celebrated family of " lutheriens " who lived in Paris during the 
reign of Louis XIII. It is possible that the " le vieux" is identical 
with the above-named Jacques, and this same person, in the course 
of a correspondence with a certain Huygens respecting the sale of a 
" luth de Bologne," wrote, " After being thirty years in the service 
of so illustrious a king and queen, I have nothing to show for it 
save this lute ; moreover I am encumbered with a wife." 

Harding, John. — In the Cheque Book, under date 167 1, there 
is this entry : — " It is ordered that the old bookes and surplices shall 
be to the use of the Gentlemen of His Majesties Chapell Royall, 
paying to the Serjeant of the Vestry i2d. for the old bookes and 
10/- apiece for their old surplices. Upon the testimony of Mr. John 
Harding, Gentleman for fifty years standing." 

Hingston, John. — In 1660 he is appointed to the viol in place 
of A. Ferabosco. He also takes Norgate's place as repairer of 
organs. In 1662 he is paid £155 for organs and harpsichord for the 
King's Chapel and the organ for the Queen's private chapel. In 
the same year he is paid £j6 15:0 for repairing the organs in the 
Chapel Royal, Whitehall, for a " base violl," and for erecting an 
organ in the Banqueting House at Whitehall. In the same year 
there is a direction given for enlarging the organ-loft at Whitehall, 
at Hingston's discretion. In 1663 he is paid £6j : 11 : o for 
removing and setting up the organ in Her Majesty's Chapel at 
S. James', for removing another organ from Whitehall to S. James' 
" for the French musick", and for " portage " of a larger organ from 
Mr. Nicoe's to S. James', and setting it up there. In 1663 there 
is a warrant for a new organ-loft at Whitehall in the place where 
formerly the great double-organ stood — the rooms over the bellows- 
room to be rebuilt two stories high, as formerly ; the lower story for 
the sub-dean, the upper story, with two rooms, one for the organist- 
in-waiting, the other for Hingston— each room to have a chimney 
and boxes and shelves. In the same year he is paid £83 : 15 : o for 
taking down the organ in the Queen's chapel at S. James' and 
remounting it in the "new musique room"; for mending organs 
and harpsichords; for mending the Queen's harpsichord "that stands 
in her own chamber " ; for mending a " claricon " ; and for erecting

an organ in the Banqueting House. In 1668 he is described as 
" tuner and repayrer of the wind instruments and organs under the 
Broad Seal," and in another list is put down as " organ maker." 
In 1669 he is paid for, amongst other items, stringing, penning, and 
repairing harpsichords. In 1673 he is paid ^45 : 3 : 6 for keeping, 
repairing, and "amending" the King's organs, harpsichords, and 
" pedalls," for the rent of a room to keep them in, for strings for 
" base violls," for a " base violl " bought by him, and various other 
services during the space of two years. In 1673 Henry Purcell is 
appointed as his assistant and successor. On pp. 298 to 300 there 
is a very interesting account presented by Hingston for work done 
from 1673 to 1675. We may note in it the following — " Repairing and 
amending two harpsichords and carrying them to the playhouse " — 
" Repairing and setting up organ in the Banqueting House for 
Maunday Thursday " — " Twenty yards of saile cloth to cover and 
secure the organ (at Windsor) from the weather and dust" — " For a 
grate harpsichord with three ranks of strings for His Majesties 
musick in the hall and in the privy lodgings." (In this account the 
name of Bernard, better known as Father, Smith, frequently occurs.) 
In 1678 we come across another account, a much shorter one, and 
lacking the interest of the first one, inasmuch as it repeats many of 
the previous items. In 1683 there is still another account, much 
resembling the previous one ; from this it is evident that an organ 
was set up in the Banqueting House at Whitehall every Maunday 
Thursday. In 1683-4, Henry Purcell succeeds Hingston. 

Holder, Dr. W.— On p. 306 two of his anthems are mentioned, 
"Thou, O God," and "O prayse our God." In 1680-1 there is a 
warrant to pay to Dr. Holder, Sub-dean of the Chapel, £12 for some 
parts of anthems and services written in the Chapel books, and for 
books and ruled paper for the Children. Grove says he was sworn 
Sub-dean in 1674, and that he resigned before Christmas, 1689 — 
that he was also Sub-almoner. He married a sister of Sir 
Christopher Wren. Hawkins says that from being very exact in 
the performance of choral service, and frequently reprimanding the 
choirmen for their negligence in it, Michael Wise used to call him 
Mr. Snub-dean. 

Humphryes, Pelham In 1666 he is bracketed with T. Purcell 

and Matthew Lock as composer. In 1665-6 he is appointed for the 
lute in the place of Nicholas Lanier. On p. 254 there is a bill for 



458 NOTES. 



teaching the Children for half a year, and to it is appended this 
note : " In this warrant was nothing for fetching children from 
several cathedrals, as is sometymes." In 1673 we have articles of 
agreement between Humfryes and J. Lilly, of S. Andrew's, 
Holborn, one of his Majesty's musicians in ordinary, for teaching and 
instructing four of the Children in the viol and theorbo, for which 
service Humfryes is to pay £30 yearly out of his salary. Humfryes 
departed this life on July 14, 1674, at tne early age of twenty-seven 
years, and was succeeded by Blow. (It is strange that in the list 
of 1673 " mortuus " is written against his name.) The service 
alluded to on p. 305 is probably his full Service in E minor. On 
p. 307 six of his anthems are mentioned, including the well-known 
" Lord, teach us to number our days." Pepys tells us that 
Humfryes, on his return from a stay on the Continent, greatly 
decried everything English, though at the same time he mightily 
abused Louis Grabu ; also that, when quite young, he was a 
pretty boy. 

Jenkins, John. — He is mentioned in 1660 for the theorbo, and 
in 1661 for the flute. We have also an entry as to the probable date 
of his decease — " Died October, 1678." Grove says he was born at 
Maidstone in 1592, and that he resided for some time in the family 
of Sir Hamon l'Estrange. North has this passage: — " His talents 
lay in the use of the lute, and Base or rather Lyra-Viol. In most 
of his friends' houses there was a chamber called by his name. He 
kept his places at Court, as I understood, to the time of his death, 
and then he for many years was incapable to attend ; the Court 
musitians had so much value for him that advantage was not taken ; 
but he received his salary, as they were payd." 

Lanier. — As will be seen by the Index, we have here to deal with 
a very numerous and intermarried family, and the information 
conveyed to us in these records concerning the various members is 
of the most meagre description. It is difficult to establish the exact 
relationships, but the most practical way of attempting an elucidation 
is to set down the individuals mentioned with their respective dates 
as given in the records. John Lanier, who is first in chronological 
order, is first mentioned in 1564, for the sackbut, and Edward 
Coleman succeeds him in 1662. Nicholas (the flute-player) is first 
mentioned in 1566. In 1603 we have the first mention of three 
members of the family, Alphonso, Jerome, and Innocent. Andrea 



NOTES. 459 

appears in 1618 for the flute, in place of his father, Nicholas ; then 
Clement, in 1625 ; and Nicholas (the singer) in 1625. Another 
Nicholas comes to light in these records in 1625, and he is the best 
known of all the Laniers, but it seems doubtful whether here two 
persons have not been rolled into one, and possibly an error may 
have been made in indexing the luter and the Master as identical. 
However, there are indications, as will be seen below, of the 
correctness of such identity. This Nicholas appears as Master of 
the Music in 1626, but in 1660 his name is crossed out, and he 
is announced as dead. In 1665-6 we have probate of the will of 
Nicholas Lanier, of East Greenwich, in Kent, "dyed and buried 
there February 24th, 1665-6." In 1666 Humfryes succeeds him for 
the lute, and Grabu as Master. The erasure of his name some 
time before his death would appear to point to a dignified retirement 
to the pleasant village where he eventually died. In the " Life of 
Inigo Jones," printed for the Shakespeare Society in 1848, there 
are some reproductions of sketches of costumes for Masques made 
by that artist. On one of these sheets of drawings (it must be said 
that they are very roughly and hastily executed, though one can 
detect the master-hand) we find depicted "a damsell," a dwarf, 
and, as a third figure, a man of more than average height, stalwart, 
and mustachioed, in a standing posture, and evidently engaged in 
plucking the strings of a harp. Over against this figure is written 
the word " Lanier." Mr. Cunningham, the editor of the above- 
mentioned work, informs us that Nicholas Lanier sang and composed 
the music for Ben Jonson's masque of " Lethe " after the Italian 
manner, " stylo recitativo." Nicholas was an artist as well as a 
musician, and sometimes assisted in painting the very scenes before 
which he figured. This same volume contains a hitherto unprinted 
Masque, or, more properly, Show, which is of rather a peculiar 
character, since it was written for the sake of introducing and 
terminating a supper, upon some occasion which has not been 
recorded. It is called the " Masque of the Four Seasons," and it 
is considered probable that Nicholas played the part of Orpheus 
in this Show, and that the sketch with the harp represents his 
costume on that occasion. We next have Henry Lanier, who 
appears in 1629, and is announced as deceased in 1633. During 
his lifetime Mrs. Emilia Lanier has a petition against him, 
showing that unanimity was not always a prevailing note in 
this family. In 1633 Mrs. Jone Lanier, the widow of Henry, 



4-6o NOTES. 



petitions to dispose of her child, William, to be trained in music. 
(William's dates in these records are from 1637 to 1660.) Thomas, 
the last member of this family to come before our notice, is 
the son of Mrs. Joyce Lanier. He also is trained by Andrea, and 
in 1660 he takes his place on his decease, and acts as executor for 
him. In 1663 there is an order for his arrest at the suit of a blind 
man. He is last mentioned in 1686. 

Lawes, Henry.— He is first mentioned as a Gentleman of the 
Chapel in 1628, and he takes the place of Richard Marsh as musician 
for the lutes and voices. In 1635-6, Henry and William have two 
lutes at £10 each on the certificate of Mr. Lanier. On p. 114, Henry 
is described as composer in the private music for lutes and voices in 
Mr. T. Ford's place. On Nov. 16, 1662, T. Purcell is composer 
for the violin in place of Henry, and in the same year Dr. Coleman 
succeeds Henry for the voices. From the Cheque Book it appears 
that Henry was sworn in " Pisteller " in 1625, and Gentleman in 
November of the same year. 

Lawes, William. — In 1635 he taK es the place, as musician in 
ordinary, of J. Lawrence. In 1662 John Clement takes William's 
place (owing to William's death) for the lutes, viol, and voices, at 
£40 per annum. Grove says that on May 5, 161 1, he resigned his 
place to Ezekiel Wade, but that on Oct. 1 he was re-admitted 
11 without paie." (The Cheque Book gives May 1 as the date of 
resignation, and quotes his actual words in resigning.) William 
joined the Royalist Army, and was killed at the siege of Chester in 
1645. Hawkins mentions that the King was so affected at his loss 
that he wore a particular suit of mourning for him. 

Lock, Mathew. — In 1660 he takes the place of John Coperario. 
On p. 123 he is in the place of Alphonso Ferrabosco as composer for 
the wind music; on p. 124 he has "a new place" amongst composers 
for the violin, and on p. 126 he is bracketed amongst composers with 
T. Purcill and P. Humfryes. In 1661-2 he is appointed composer 
to the King's private band. On p. 169 there is an account paid to 
Margaret Pothero for lodging Mr. Lock, organist, and his servants, 
at 10/- per week. On p. 207 it is stated that his yearly salary as 
composer is £46 : 10 : o, but on p. 210 it is put down at £40. On 
p. 307 an anthem by Mr. Lock, "Not unto us, O Lord " is mentioned. 
On p. 318 he is mentioned as being deputy to Mr. Staggins. In 1677, 
Henry Purcell takes his place amongst the violins, and in the same 



NOTES. 4 6i 



year Ed. Dyer takes his place as composer. North, in his " Memoires 
of Musick," gives us considerable information about Lock, and the 
following passages may here be appropriately quoted : — " He was 
organist at Somerset House Chappell as long as he lived " — (this 
statement is rather too ample) — "but the Italian masters that served 
there did not approve of his manner of play, but must be attended by 
more polite hands, and one while one Sabinico" (mentioned in these 
records) " and afterwards Sig. Baptista Draghi used the great organ, 
and Lock (who must not be turned out of place, nor the execution) 
had a small chamber organ hard by, on which he performed with 
them the same services." Also — " He " (Lock) " set most of the 
psalms to musick in parts, for the use of some vertuoso ladies in 
the city ; and he composed a magnificent consort of four parts after 
the old style, which was the last of the kind that hath been made, so 
we may rank him with Cleomenes, king of Sparta, who was styled 
' ultimus Nerooum.' " What dear old-fashioned sonorousness! We 
can fancy that even Lock himself would be rather startled to hear 
such magniloquent parallelism, not to mention the vocal adaptability 
of the Latin appellation. 

Matteis, N. — This name only comes before us once in these 
records, and that is in 1686, when he witnesses a letter of assignment 
by F. Cruys. Grove says he was an eminent Italian violinist who 
came to England about 1672. In 1696 he composed an Ode for 
S. Cecilia's Day, but this, according to North, was never printed. 
Pepys thus alludes to him : — " By all that I have knowne of him and 
other musick of Italy, I cannot but judge him to have bin second 
to Corelli." 

Nightingale, R. — Hawkins has a brief note about this musician, 
in which he says that he was distinguished as a singer, that he was 
one of the Chapel Gentlemen under Charles I., that he became a 
clergyman, and that at the Restoration, though then advanced 
in years, he was again appointed a member of the Royal 
Chapel. 

Notari, A. — He first appears in 1625. In 1633 he is in debt. 
In 1660, Henry Purcell is put in his place, but see entry on p. 124. 
In 1662, Henry Purcell is appointed for the lute "in the same 
place " with Notari. In 1663 (?) he is written down as " mort," 
and in 1664, John Goodgroome is appointed in his place. Fetis says 
that he was an Italian musician who established himself in London 



462 NOTES. 



in the beginning of the 17th century. About 1614 he printed a 
collection of pieces under the following title, " Prime musiche 
nuove a 1, 2, e 3 voci, per cantar con la tiorba ed altri stromenti. 
Londres, 1616." 

Pordage, Mr.— In Evelyn's Diary, under date Jan. 27, 1685, 
we have the following entry : " I din'd at Lord Sunderland's, being 
invited to heare that celebrated voice of Mr. Pordage, newly come 
from Rome ; his singing was after the Venetian recitative, as 
masterly as could be, and with an excellent voice both treble and 
basse — Pordage is a priest, as Mr. Bernard Howard told me in 
private." 

Pownell, N.— The Cheque Book says that Mr. R. Sandie (see 
Index) and Mr. N. Pownall had in 1630 an admonition given them 
to be more industrious and studious. This was when Laud was 
Bishop of London and Dean of the Chapel Royal. 

Purcell, Henry. — In 1660 he is amongst the composers for 
the violin in the place of Angelo Notari ; this is afterwards crossed 
out, and the name of John Goodgroome is written over Purcell's 
name, with the date August 20, 1664. This is confirmed on 
pp. 170 and 173, and is stated to be in consequence of Purcell the 
elder's death, though in 1662, Henry is appointed for lute and voice 
in the same place with Notari. On June 10, 1673, Henry Purcell, 
apparently the son, is appointed keeper of organs, &c, and assistant 
to John Hingston, and in December, 1673, clothing and £30 per 
annum is to be provided for a certain Henry Purcell, late Child of 
the Chapel, whose voice has changed. Also in January, 1674, there 
is an account for fine holland and a felt hat for this same Henry ; 
in February and at Michaelmas bills for handkerchiefs ; and in 
1676 there is an order for four whole shirts, four half shirts, bands 
and cuffs. (Bumpus says that Henry, the younger, was born in 
1658, so that he was fifteen years old when he left the Chapel — are 
we therefore to believe that at this age he was appointed to a 
responsible post ?) About 1674, Henry's name is substituted in the 
list of musicians for that of Matthew Lock, and on Sep. 10, 1677, he 
is appointed composer in ordinary with fee for the violin, in the 
place of Lock, now deceased. In 1683, Henry is appointed organ- 
maker and keeper, in place of Mr. Hingston, deceased. (Possibly 
this may point to his previously being under the tutelage of 



NOTES. 463 



Hingston, and perhaps in a manner apprenticed to him.) For the 
full terms of the warrant, allowing him the same powers and 
privileges as his predecessor, and the same salary (£60 per annum), 
and this quite apart from any sum for necessary expenses, see 
p. 364. On August 31, 1685, in the list of James II. 's musicians, 
we have the entry, " Harpsicall, Henry Purcell." On p. 394 he is 
described as " musician composer," and on Nov. 30, 1695, Dr. 
Blow and Mr. Bernard Smith succeed him on his decease. Henry 
lost his father when he was only six years old, and was left to the 
guardianship of his uncle, Thomas Purcell. It will be seen that 
unfortunately Henry the younger only lived for thirty-seven 
years. 

Purcell, Thomas. — In Nov., 1662, he is appointed musician 
in ordinary in the place of Henry Lawes, deceased. On p. 124 
he is put amongst composers for the violin in place of Henry 
Lawes, and on p. 155 is in the receipt for lutes and voices in 
the private music, in the place of Henry Lawes, of £36 : 2 : 6 per 
annum, the lowest amount mentioned in the list on p. 207. On 
p. 252 he is mentioned as Groom of the Robes. In 1673 he is 
appointed with Humfryes in the place of George Hudson, deceased, 
as composer for the violins — and payment to both is to be at the 
rate of £42 : 5 : 10 during their natural lives, and to be continued 
for the longest liver, but the next entry (p. 257) mentions the sum 
of £200 per annum, and the longest liver. In 1674 he receives 
three liveries, in the places respectively of Henry Lawes, Dr. John 
Wilson, and George Hudson. He receives £40 annually as Groom 
of the Robes (p. 289). In Oct., 1675, he is paid £410 : 8 : o 
for attendance of himself and organist on Charles II. at Windsor 
for seventy-two days. In 1676 he is appointed to the private music 
in the place of Dr. Wilson at £20 per annum. In 1679 he appears 
in the list of the Gentlemen who attended at Windsor in 1678. 
(Amongst the Children who were there at the same time is one 
Daniel Purcell. Grove says that Daniel was the youngest son of 
old Henry Purcell.) On p. 381 there is a memorandum of monies 
owing on the decease of Thomas Purcell. 

Sebenico, G. — On p. 222 this musician is with another of 
his countrymen mentioned in conjunction with Mr. Killigrew under 
the heading of " Italian Musitians," a curious circumstance, and 
evidently a clerical error in the inclusion of Mr. Killigrew. In 1673 



464 NOTES. 



" a chayne or medall of gold of about the value of £70 " is to 
be given to him. Sebenico was a professor of singing, a good 
tenor, also a composer. He was born at Venice towards the middle 
of the seventeenth century. A note in North's Memoirs speaks 
of him as an obscure musician who came to this country with 
Mary d'Este, Princess of Modena. Some of his compositions are 
preserved in the Oxford Music School. 

Shore. — Of this family we have four members mentioned in 
these records. There is a John Shore, trumpeter, who appears in 
1688, and in 1690 is appointed to attend King William to Holland, 
being paid for such service 55. " per diem." In 1695 there is a 
John Shore, musician, who in 1696-7 is appointed one of the 
musicians in ordinary under William and Mary. The last mention 
of him is in 1700. Mathias Shore, serjeant trumpeter, appears in 
1681-2. As serjeant he has £80 per annum. In the time of 
William and Mary he attends the King to Holland at the wages of 
lod. a day. In 1696 he claims £60 for his livery for 1692. In 
1697 he is in the enjoyment of £100 per annum. It is said that 
the daughter of Mathias married the celebrated actor, Colley 
Cibber. William Shore appears in 1679. In 1690 he is to 
attend King William to Holland. In 1693-4 there is an order for 
a new livery for him, he having been robbed whilst campaigning. 
In the same campaign, in Flanders, he also seems to have been 
robbed of his trumpet. In 1696-7, in company with three other 
trumpeters, he attends the Ambassadors for the Treaty of Peace. 
In 1700 he is appointed serjeant trumpeter in the place of 
Mathias, although previous to this date he is once mentioned 
(evidently in error) as serjeant. The title of Serjeant Trumpeter 
lapsed when the late Thomas John Harper retired (see Athenceum , 
Jan. 2, 1909). As the notes under this name deal with trumpeters, 
it may now be mentioned that in the case of Henry Peacock, who 
is many times mentioned in these records as a " pentionary 
trumpeter," we find the following in the Calendar of State Papers 
(Domestic Series) : — " 1660. Henry Peacock, His Majesty's 
Trumpetere (Petition to the King) for restoration to the place which 
he held under him as Prince, and not confirmed therein in Scotland. 
Lost £1,500, all he had, in the Royalist cause, was dangerously 
wounded at the battle of Worcester, and imprisoned. With note 
that he is to bring a certificate to the Lord Chamberlain for serjeant 
trumpeter." 



NOTES. 465 



Smyth, Bernard. — The real name of the family is Schmidt. 
Bernard came to England at the time of the Restoration. He is 
said to have been called " Father " Smith to distinguish him from 
his two nephews. In 1674 he is spoken of as " the organ maker." 
In 1681 he is appointed organ-maker in the place of Farr. On 
p. 398 there is a special warrant to Bernard. In 1690 he is to 
provide a new organ for the Chapel at Hampton Court. In 1695 he 
is appointed with Blow as tuner of various instruments. In 1698, 
£200 is to be advanced to him for the organ at Whitehall Chapel. 
In 1699 he is to deliver to the minister and wardens of St. Ann's, 
Westminster, the organ in S. James' Chapel. He last appears in 
these records in 1699. 

Staggins. — Of this family no less than six members are mentioned 
in these records, but of these six, three are only distinguished by a 
solitary reference, giving us the following dates: James, 1660-1 ; 
John and Thomas, 1676. Isaac, the father of Nicholas, appears in 
1660, and in 1684, Charles, another son, takes Isaac's place. In 
1671, Nicholas is appointed for the violin in the place of W. Young, 
and in 1673 takes Young's place for the flute. In 1674 he is 
appointed to be master of the violinists, and in this year he appears to 
have taken Grabu's place. On pp. 297-8 there is a very interesting 
bill from Nicholas for £93 : 2 : o. In 1678-9, Dr. Staggins and the 
violinists are to attend the King every night a play is acted at Court. 
In 1685 Dr. Nicholas Staggins is re-appointed Master of the Music 
under James II. On p. 280 we have another bill from Dr. Nicholas 
in connection with expenses incurred at the coronation of James II. 
On p. 383 there is an admonition to the Doctor. Later, we find that 
the Doctor attended King William to Holland. In 1695-6 (be it 
mentioned with bated breath) he owes the brewer £120 (!) for " beare 
and ale." In 1700, John Eccles is appointed Master, on the Doctor's 
decease. 

Testa, Andrea. — In the Calendar of State Papers (Domestic 
Series) we have under date of 1668 a petition of Andrea to the King 
for a pension promised by His Majesty, " as formerly granted to 
Gerolamo Zenti, harpsicall maker, whose place he supplies, being 
sent over by Zenti, who went to Paris, and died in the French 
King's service. 

Tinker, Philip. — In 1661 a Rev. Philip Tinker was Confessor 
of the Household. It was " the duty of the Clerk of the Closet or 



466 NOTES. 



Confessor to the Sovereign, who was usually a Bishop, to attend 
at the right hand of the Sovereign in the Royal Closet during 
Divine Service." 

Tomkins. — All of the family who are mentioned in these 
records appear to have been sons of a Rev. Thomas Tomkins, of 
Gloucester Cathedral. Thomas, who appears in 1625, was sworn 
as organist of the Chapel Royal in 1621, and died in 1656. John is 
mentioned in 1628, and in 1633 was organist on Charles the First's 
journey to Scotland. Giles succeeds Richard Deering, and is 
co-organist with his brother in 1633. He is appointed to the 
virginals in 1660, and is inscribed as dead in 1668, Blow being his 
successor. Robert is in 1641 amongst the King's musicians. 

Turner, William. — In the time of Charles II. he is under 
Captain Cooke, who is to have £30 per annum for keeping him 
after he left the Chapel, his voice being changed. This is to com- 
mence in 1666. In 167 1 he is amongst the Gentlemen at Windsor. 
In 1672 he is appointed for the lute and voice in the place of his 
master, now deceased. A warrant on page 264 shows that he 
had ^"30 yearly from 1666 to 1670. In 1674 he is singing in 
" The Tempest " at His Royal Highness' Theatre, and is to remain 
in town (even in the King's absence) all the week for that purpose, 
only taking the week-end at Windsor. In 1674 he is apparently 
engaged in the masque at Whitehall. Three of his anthems are 
mentioned on page 307 — " Lord, what is man," " Lord God of 
hosts," and " O Lord, Thou hast been our refuge." In 1689 he is 
appointed to the vocal music. " He had the singular honour," says 
Boyce, " of being a Gentleman of the Royal Chapels to seven 
kings and queens successively." He was eighty-eight years old 
when he died. Grove says that he died in 1739-40, having survived 
his wife, with whom he had lived nearly seventy years, only four 
days, and they were buried in one grave in the cloister of 
Westminster Abbey. A charming instance of wedded constancy, 
and a good trait in one who was the guardian of young Henry, 
his nephew ! 

Walsh, John. — In 1692 he is appointed "Musical Instrument 
Maker in Ordinary to His Majesty," in the place of John Shaw, 
surrendered. He last appears in 1699. He was one of the most 
eminent music-publishers of his day, and is said to have amassed a 
fortune of £20,000. He died in 1736. 



NOTES. 467 



Warwick, Thomas. — He first appears in 1628, and is mentioned 
in 1641 for the virginal. In 1660, Christopher Gibbons takes his 
place. " Mr. T. Warrick in 1630 received a check of his whole 
paye for the month of March because he presumed to playe verses 
on the organ at service tyme, being formerly inhibited by the Deane 
from doinge the same, by reason of his insufficiency for that 
solemne service." (Cheque Book.) 

White, Blase. — " 1675. Mr. Blasius White was by the Sub- 
deane discharged from His Majestie's service in obedience to His 
Majestie's pleasure so signified in this following letter from Mr. 
Vice-Chamberlain." (Cheque Book.) No reason is assigned in 
the letter for such discharge. 

Wilson, Dr. John. — He was born in 1594, and first appears in 
these records in 1635. He i s sa ^ t0 have been a Gentleman of the 
Chapel. His name is not found in the Cheque Book, but he is 
there described in a warrant of April 17, 1641, as being amongst 
" Musicians for the Waytes." He died at Westminster in 1673, and 
was buried in the cloisters of the Abbey, and on p. 266 we have the 
certificate of his burial. In 1673-4, Thomas Purcell takes his place. 
He is said to have been a fine lutenist, and Charles I. greatly 
admired his singing. 

Wise, Michael. — In 1644, James Farr is to be paid £30 yearly 
for the maintenance of Wise, whose voice has changed ; to commence 
from September last, 1663. In 1665, Captain Cooke is to be paid 
for his disbursements for clothes for Wise. In 1678, £30 is to be 
paid yearly to Wise during Charles the Second's pleasure. In 1684 
Wise is mentioned with Dr. W. Child as musician in ordinary for 
the cornet, with wages of 2od. a day, and usual livery. Bumpus 
says that in 1668 he succeeded Giles Tomkins as organist of 
Salisbury, and that in 1675 he succeeded Courteville (mentioned in 
these records) at the Chapel Royal. Grove gives particulars 
respecting his somewhat tragic end. 

Woodwarde, Richard. — He appears in these records in 1546-7. 
In 1563 he is mentioned as " musician to the lady the Queen " 
(Elizabeth). There is evidently some confusion here, as details 
given by Grove relate to R. Edwards, and yet they seem in part 
to fit this personage, who does not appear to have been really a 
bagpiper, as he is only once so mentioned. Possibly there should 
have been two separate entries in the Index, but the question 
presents difficulties.

NOTES ON COURT MASQUES, 

PARTICULARLY THE WHITEHALL 

MASQUE OF 1674. 



It will be noticed that in the years 1674-5 we have a vast amount 
of detail concerning the production of a masque at Whitehall. 
There is given a list of singers and musicians who took part in the 
masque, further on we have bills showing cost of dresses furnished 
for some of the musicians, with accounts as to materials and 
making, and lastly a bill to be paid to the Master of the Music for 
labours entailed in attending to the proper supplying of the music 
for the masque. I was at first inclined to consider this masque, 
which was evidently a function of considerable importance, as being 
an adaptation of some French opera of the time. But when I carefully 
read the chapter in Canon Sheppard's " History of Whitehall," 
which treats of this form of entertainment, I could come to no 
other conclusion, so identical were many of the particulars, that 
this is none other than Crowne's masque, " Calisto, or the Chaste 
Nymph." I should advise everyone to read the chapter referred 
to, as it really supplements all that is set down in these records. 

Before speaking of this particular performance, I should like to 
mention three masques that were presented at Court in the reign of 
James I., and that may be fitly included in this section. They call 
for attention, because amongst those employed, we find the names 
of some musical worthies who live again in these records. 

The Masque of Hymen, produced in 1605-6, was the work of 
Jonson and Jones. The music was composed by " Master Alphonso 
Ferrabosco," and the dances made and taught by " Master Thomas 
Giles." The Masque in celebration of the " Lord Viscount 
Haddington's marriage at Court on the Shrove Tuesday at night " 
(1607-8) — the Carnival season seems to have been a favoured time 



47 2 NOTES. 



for these performances — was called "The Hue and Cry after 
Cupid " (an admirable title for a modern play). Of the four dances 
in it, two were made by Thomas Giles, two by " Master Heer 
Heme," and, as before, the tunes were by " Master Alphonso 
Ferrabosco." 

The Masque, " Love freed from Ignorance and Folly " (a rather 
cumbersome naming), was presented at Christmas, 1610-11. The 
Bill of Costs has been discovered among the Pell Records. 
Amongst " Rewards to the persons imployed in the Maske" 
are the following items : — " To Mr. Alfonso, for making the 
songes, ^"20; to Thomas Lupo " (mentioned in our records) "for 
setting the dances to the violins, £5 ; to the twelve musicians 
that were priests, that songe and played, £24 ; to the twelve other 
lutes that suplied, and w th flute, £^\ to the ten violencas that 
continually practized to the Queen, £20 ; to four more that were 
added at the Maske, £\ ; fifteen musitions that played to the pages 
and fooles, ^"20 ; to eighteen hoboyes and sackbutts, £10" 

Before giving any account of " Calisto," I here introduce 
two maxims which attracted my attention on reading through the 
" Mountebank's Maske," by John Marston. The one is, " He cannot 
be a cuckold that weares a Gregorian, for a periwigg will never fitt 
such a head." On p. 384 of our records it will be noticed that 
several musicians are classified under the heading " Gregorians." 
I do not mean to say that the above quotation has a note of 
explanation in it. I cannot imagine that in describing musicians 
any term of political significance would be used ; rather, looking at 
the period in which this term occurs, must we conclude that it refers 
to the modal character of the music which they sang. The other 
maxim is somewhat in the nature of a pun, and I commend it 
as a motto : " Musicians cannot but be helthfull, for they live 
by good aire." 

With regard to John Crowne, the writer of " Calisto," it will be 
sufficient to say that he was the son of an Independent minister " in 
that part of America which is called Nova Scotia " — that he was 
considered superior to Dryden as a writer of comedies — that he 
contributed a song or two, set to music by Henry Purcell, to the 
" Gentleman's Journal, or Monthly Miscellany," edited by Motteux 
in 1691-2 — and that he got the nickname of " Starch Johnny 
Crowne " from the " stiff and unalterable primness of his long 
cravat." 



NOTES. 



473 



It was owing to the influence of the Earl of Rochester that 
Crowne was selected to compose this Masque, for the task ought 
naturally to have fallen to Dryden, as Poet-Laureate. Dryden 
appears to have gracefully waived his rights, and was good-natured 
enough to write an Epilogue, but this, through the above-named 
influence, was rejected, a somewhat unnecessary insult. 

The Masque, which was printed in 1675, is dedicated to " Her 
Highness the Lady Mary, Eldest Daughter of His Royal Highness 
the Duke." Crowne, in his " Preface to the Reader," says that he 
was only allowed a month to write the play, prologue, and songs. 
" I was also confined in the number of the persons ; I had but seven 
allowed me — those seven to be all ladies, and of those ladies two only 
to appear in men's habits" : " I have in the Prologue represented 
the river Thames by a woman, and Europe by a man, contrary to all 
authority and antiquity. I know no sexes in lands and rivers, nor 
of any laws in poetry, but the fundamental one to please, — and the 
graceful motions and admirable singing of Mrs. Davis" (mentioned 
in our records) " did sufficiently prove the discretion of my choice. 
And Thames, Peace, and Plenty, being represented by women, I 
was necessitated to make Europe a man — otherwise I must either 
have made those parts of the world men, and one a woman ; or 
worse, representing them all by women, have spoiled the music by 
making it consist all of trebles." 

Turning to the list of names in our records on pp. 280-1, the 
following can be identified with characters represented in the 
Masque : Mrs. Davies, the River Thames ; Mrs. Knight, Peace ; 
Mrs. Butler, Plenty ; Mr. Hart, Europe ; Mr. Richardson, Asia ; 
Mr. Marsh, jun., Africa ; Mr. Ford, America ; Mr. Turner, the 
Genius of England. These were all in the Prologue, and the only 
words that came from the three continents, in response to Europe 
saying " I will my thanks in offerings proclaim," were the 
following :— (Asia) " I'll lend you spice ; " (America) " I gold ; " 
(Africa) " I the same; " so that these were not exacting parts ! 

In the " Choruses betwixt the x\cts " the following were 
employed: — Mr. Hart, Strephon; Mrs. Turner, Coridon ; Mrs. Davis, 
Sylvia ; Mrs. Knight, Daphne ; Mrs. Butler and Mrs. Hunt, two 
"African Women, or Blacks." These interludes break up the 
several acts of the Masque, filling up the time usually allowed for 
the " entr'actes." They are conceived in a pastoral vein, as the 
names of the characters will show, and whilst they formed a sort of 



474 NOTES. 



explanatory undercurrent to the play, they afforded opportunities for 
singing and dancing. They have some points of resemblance with 
the Spanish " entremeses." In the Prologue and the Masque itself 
there were also various dancing entries ; for instance, in the Prologue 
one stage direction is : " Here the Princesses and the other ladies 
danced several sarabands, with castanets " (the saraband being 
really a Spanish measure). " A minuet was also danced by his 
Grace the Duke of Monmouth." At the end of Act I., there 
is the direction : " An entry of Basques " (probably to exhibit some 
quaint dance of the Pyrenean region). We find also at the end of 
the other acts respectively: "An entry of gypsies," "An entry of 
satyrs," " An entry of Bacchuses." In the Prologue we meet 
with this naive direction : " The following stanza is properly part 
of the Genius's speech — but being set extremely pleasantly, and for 
a treble voice, it was sung by Thames." 

As a specimen of the lyrical merit of the songs, we cull the 
vocal number at the conclusion of the Prologue. " Enter two, who 
sing this following song — 

Now for the play, the prologue is done, 
The dancing is o'er, and the singers are gone. 
The ladies so fine, and so fair, it surpasses, 
Are dress'd, and have all tak'n leave of their glasses. 
Where are the slaves that should make ready the stage ? 
Here, here are the slaves should make ready the stage. 
An Entry of Carpenters." 
In praising and thanking the performers, Crowne mentions 
" the singers, and the composer of all the musick, both vocal and 
instrumental. — Mr. Staggins has not only delighted us with his 
excellent composition, but with the hopes of seeing in a very short 
time a master of music in England equal to any France or Italy 
have produced." (See Mr. Staggins' bill in connection with charges 
for the music of the Masque on p. 290 of our records.) 

The Masque proper is taken from that incident in the Second 
Book of Ovid's Metamorphoses which shows the meeting of Jupiter 
with Calisto, a daughter of the King of Lycaonia. Crowne dexterously 
avoids the natural and realistic sequence of the story by making 
Calisto triumph by her chastity over the amorous advances of the 
monarch of Olympus, who presents himself to her affrighted gaze 
first in the guise of Diana and then in his own shape. Crowne also 
introduces an underplot of his own imagining in which he makes 



NOTES. 475 



Mercury fall in love with one of Diana's attendants, Psecas, " an 
envious nymph," who assists Juno against Calisto, and is rewarded 
with the jealous queen's friendship. 

The characters in the Masque were represented by the following 
Royal and noble personages : — Calisto, H.H. the Lady Mary ; 
Nyphe, friend to Calisto, H.H. the Lady Anne; Jupiter, the Lady 
Henrietta Wentworth ; Juno, the Countess of Sussex ; Psecas, the 
Lady Mary Mordant ; Diana, Mrs. Blagge ; Mercury, Mrs. 
Jennings. " The Nymphs who danced in the prologue and in the 
several entries in the play were, the Countess of Derby, the Countess 
of Pembroke, the Lady Katharine Herbert, Mrs. Fitzgerald, 
Mrs. Frazier." "The Persons of Quality of the men that danced 
were, His Grace the Duke of Monmouth, the Viscount Dunblaine, 
the Lord Daincourt, Mr. Trevor, Mr. Harpe, Mr. Lane." 

The Princess Mary, afterwards Queen Mary, was born 
at S. James' Palace on April 30, 1662, and was therefore nearly 
thirteen years old when she acted in this Masque. Princess Anne, 
afterwards Queen Anne, was born Feb. 10, 1664, and was therefore 
nearly eleven years old at the end of 1674. Mrs. Jennings, Maid 
of Honour to the Duchess of York, subsequently married John 
Churchill, and was famous as the " confidante " and adviser of 
Queen Anne. Mrs. Frazier was a Maid of Honour to the Queen. 

Evelyn mentions that Mrs. Godolphin, when Margaret Blagge, 
performed the character of Diana in this Masque, and " had on that 
day near twenty thousand pounds value of Jewells," also that during 
the performance she lost a diamond lent to her by the Countess of 
Suffolk. The stage was swept and diligent search made, but it was 
probably stolen in " the infinite crowd." However, the King or the 
Duke sent sufficient money to repair the Countess' loss. " For the 
rest of that days triumph I have a particular account still by me of 
the rich apparel she" (Mrs. Blagge) "had on her, amounting 
besides the Pearles and Pretious Stones, to above three hundred 
pounds, but of all which she immediately disposed her selfe soe 
soone as ever she could get clear of the stage. Without compli- 
menting any creature or trifling with the rest who staid the collation 
and refreshment — away she slips like spiritt to Berkley House to 
her little oratorye : whither I waited on her, and left her on her 
knees thanking God that she was delivered from this vanity, and 
with her Saviour againe ; never, says she, will I come within this 
temptation more whilst I breath."

concerning the Masque in his Whitehall book : — " All the Women's

There is a large amount of useful information concerning this 
Masque in Vol. I. of the Dramatic Works of John Crowne, published 
by Sotheran in 1873, an( ^ I am indebted to this work for many of 
the particulars above given. 

Evelyn in his Diary gives December 15 and 22, 1674, as the 
dates on which " Calisto " was presented at Court. On the first 
occasion he calls it " a comedie," and on the second " the 
Pastoral." 



NOTES ON SOME GENERAL 
REFERENCES IN THESE RECORDS. 



Page i. — " Mynstralls." The word "minstrel" does not appear 
to have been in use in this country before the Norman conquest. 
By a Record of the gth year of Edward IV. it is recited to be the 
duty of minstrels to pray in the King's Chapel, " and particularly 
for the departed souls of the King and Queen when they shall die." 
" The minstrels derived their knowledge from the schools of the 
monasteries. They learnt something of the theoretical principles 
of music, the practical part of singing, and the elements of grammar, 
including perhaps as much knowledge of poetry as was sufficient for 
the composition of a song or ballad." North, in alluding to the 
reign of Henry VIII., says: "There was small show of skill in music 
in England, except what belonged to the cathedral churches and 
monasteries (when such were), and for that reason the consortiers 
wherever they went were called Minstels, and then the whole faculty 
of music — The Minstrelsie."

Pages 7 and 8. — In comparing the list of names given on these 
pages with a somewhat similar list given in Burney, and with 
another list (almost similar to Burney's) given in Hawkins, we 
may note that the following names correspond with those found in 
these records. [In any variation of the name, such variation is added 
in brackets.] "William Hychyns (Huchins), Robert Philipps, 
Thomas Byrde, Richard Bower (Bowyer), Robert Perrye (Perry), 
William Barber, Robert Richemound (Richemount), Thomas Whayt 
(Wayte), Thomas Talys, Nicholas Mellowe, Thomas Wright." From 
the same sources we have some particulars as to various payments, 
which may be compared with those on pp. 38 and 39. Though the 
sums mentioned in our records belong to a somewhat later date, 
there will in some instances be observed a striking similarity,

William Davenant.

Royal cease in 1640, and re-commence in 1660. In these records, 
as will be seen, the entries stop at the beginning of 1644, and begin 
again about the middle of 1660. The gap is caused by the 
Commonwealth epoch. 

Page 120. — We have an account of the amount of scarlet cloth 
given to, respectively, the Children, the wind musicians, the com- 
posers, and the violinists, for the Coronation of Charles II., and 
there is a similar reference on p. 392. This scarlet cloth was for 
the purpose of being made into mantles, according to the following 
directions : " These mantles were made like a Rocolo (but without 
a cape, button, or buttonhole), gathered and bound round with a silk 
Ferrit, to tye before with a Bow Not ; and a silk button and loop 
stitched round to fasten it round the neck like a Rocolo. The 
length of the Mantle must be so as to reach the ground behind." 
This word "Rocolo" is evidently a somewhat misspelt form of 
an Italian word, and would seem to imply that these mantles were 
to be made on the model of a rochet. In Fairholt's " Costume in 
England " a Rochette is defined as a loose upper garment, and a 
clerical gown, and a Rochet as a cloak without a cape. 

Page 134. — On this page we find a warrant for taking up all 
trumpeters, drummers, and fifers, who sound with trumpets, or beat 
drums, or blow fifes, at plays, dumb shows, or " models," without 
license from the serjeant-trumpeter. On p. 206 there is a similar 
order, with this addition — it empowers the serjeant to take fees from 
show-mongers. On p. 217 there is a warrant for apprehending 



NOTES. 4 8i 



seven persons for keeping playhouses, and sounding trumpets, drums, 
and fifes, at dumb shows, and " modells," without paying the fee to 
the serjeant — the said fee being I2d. per day, to be paid by every 
playhouse when there are performances, the King's players excepted. 
On p. 225 there is a similar notice regarding the penalties attaching 
to dumb shows, &c. On pp. 232-3 there is set out in full the form 
of warrant used for apprehending these offenders. There are other 
references in these records, which, though they have to do with the 
Corporation of Music, and not with the Serjeant-Trumpeter, may 
here conveniently be noticed. On p. 169, " all persons professing 
the art and science of musick,who play at playhouses, gamehouses, 
taverns, victualling houses, or any place in the city of London and 
Westminster, without the approbation and lycense of the Marshall 
and Corporation of musique" are to be apprehended. On p. 217 we 
notice that five persons, amongst them Caesar Duffill, one of the 
King's violinists, are arrested for " teaching, practising, and executing 
music, in companies and otherwise," without approbation or license. 
On p. 221 there are the names of five other persons so arrested. On 
p. 231 there are the names of four others. On p. 241 we have 
the text of a warrant for apprehending four musicians (names 
given) ; on p. 246 another body of five are to be arrested ; and on 
p. 249 we read that no less a number than seventeen are to be 
arrested, although it should be stated that some of the names have 
occurred previously, and are only here repeated. Lastly, on p. 257 
there are the names of seven persons to be arrested on similar 
charges. Grove points out that so early as 1469, Edward IV. 
granted a charter to his "beloved minstrels" empowering them 
to constitute themselves into a guild ; that at the opening of 
the sixteenth century there is a mention of a new guild, a 
" Fellowship of Minstrels and Freemen of the City of London ; " 
that this Fellowship was reconstituted under a charter of James I., 
which brought into existence the Company of Musicians. (For 
further information respecting the history of our Musicians' 
Company, I refer interested readers to the admirable hand-book 
issued by the Company some few years ago.) The main object of these 
respective bodies was always one and the same, viz., to safeguard 
their privileges, and to prevent the unlawful exercise of their calling 
by those not properly qualified for the same. Whether the Corpora- 
tion of Music, above alluded to, is identical with the Company 
seems a question open to some doubt, but the use of the term 



482 NOTES. 



" Marshal " leads me to believe that such identity might be safely 
established. Burney is very severe and acrimonious when speaking 
of the Musicians' Company. " For what purposes does it exist," 
he asks, with a lofty scorn, " but to provide aliens with a cheap 
expedient of acquiring the freedom of the city, and it hinders from 
processions and city feasts those street and country-dance players 
who have talent. It has been ever held in derision by real professors. 
Upon what beneficial principle James I. incorporated the musicians 
of London into a Company it is now difficult to discover." If old 
Burney could be summoned to earth again, and see the excellent 
work the Company is now doing in the cause of music, I think 
he would rub his eyes a little, and ask for a pinch of snuff to clear 
his brain ! 

Page 142. — " Collar of S.S." "The collar of S.S. consisted of 
a silver collar, between the links of which were twelve small pieces 
of silver engraved with the twelve articles of the creed, together with 
a single trefoil ; the image of S. Simplicius (S.S.) hung at the collar, 
and from it seven plates represented the seven gifts of the Holy 
Ghost " (Dodd's Manual). Possibly in the case under notice a 
modification of the original design may have been thought to be 
more in order. 

Page 147. — Order concerning "curtolls." Hawkins writes, 
" Upon the revival of the choral service, in the royal chapel 
especially, they were necessitated for want of treble voices, to make 
use of cornets, and on particular occasions sacbuts and other instru- 
ments were also employed. At James the Second's coronation 
walked two of the King's musicians in scarlet mantles, playing each 
on a sacbut, and another, clad in like manner, playing on a double 
curtal or bassoon." Matthew Locke, in " The Present Practice of 
Music Vindicated" (1673), writes: "For above a year after the 
opening of His Majesty's Chappell the orderers of the musick there 
were necessitated to supply the superior parts of their musick with 
cornets and men's feigned voices, there being not one lad for all 
that time capable of singing his part readily." 

Page 176. — An order for gowns of coloured silk for twenty-four 
violinists, half for the Theatre Royal, half for the Duke of York's 
Theatre, and twenty-four garlands of coloured flowers— all these 
things to be given to Mr Killigrew for His Majesty's extraordinary 
service. On p. 211 there is another order to the same effect, only 



NOTES. 483 



in this case, the gowns are not to be so full, and are to have short 
sleeves to the elbow ; it was probably found that the former habits 
seriously interfered with the playing of the violins ; on p. 263 there 
is evidently a similar order ; on p. 266 we have a like order, and 
again the gowns are to have short sleeves. On p. 269 we find still 
another order, " after the same manner and fashion as formerly." 
I think, looking at the date of the first of these entries, that it 
refers to the representation at the King's Theatre in Drury Lane, 
in January, 1664, of "The Indian Queen," a tragedy in heroic 
verse, by Sir Robert Howard and Mr. Dryden. With regard to 
Mr. Killigrew and the two theatres here mentioned, I must make a 
necessary digression, which, though not belonging strictly to the art 
of music, concerns a sister art, and may be interesting to a general 
reader. These particulars are taken from Dr. Doran's " Annals." 
Charles II., in 1663, granted patents for two theatres in London. 
Under one patent, Killigrew, at the head of the King's Company, 
opened a new theatre in Drury Lane in August, 1663 : under the 
second patent, Davenant and the Duke of York's company found a 
house, first at the Cockpit, and then in Salisbury Court, Fleet 
Street. This second house was destroyed in the fire of 1666, but 
before the great conflagration Davenant and his troop went to the 
old Tennis Court. In 167 1, after Davenant's death, his company 
migrated to a house designed by Wren, and decorated by Grinling 
Gibbons ; this was the Duke's Theatre, in Dorset Gardens. It is 
worth remembering, for this presents a note of similarity with the 
Chapel Royal establishment, that the actors in Killigrew's company 
were sworn at the Lord Chamberlain's office to serve the King. 
Of these gentlemen, ten were enrolled in the Royal Household 
establishment, and provided with liveries of scarlet cloth and silver 
lace. In the warrants of the Lord Chamberlain they were styled 
" Gentlemen of the Great Chamber." It may not be inappropriate 
to quote here, with respect to the above-mentioned dresses for 
musicians, the following passage from North's " Memoires of 
Musick " : "In the reign of King James the First musick had the 
greatest encouragement, for the masques at Court, which were a 
sort of Balles, or Operas, found imployment for very many of them, 
and in the Theaters at Court they were adorned with liverys, that is 
divers coloured silk mantles and scarfs with rich capps, and the 
master in the shape of an Apollo, for decoration of the same." The 
office of Master of the Revels is also alluded to on p. 176, and a 



484 NOTES. 



word of explanation may not be amiss. Hone's " Every-Day Book" 
(vol. i., p. 1243) has the following: "The late T. C. Crowle was 
master of the revels. In that quality he claimed a seat in any part of 
the theatres, and being opposed by the manager of the little theatre 
in the Haymarket, maintained his right. He was also trumpet-major 
of England, to whom every one who blows a trumpet publicly 
(excepting those of the theatres-royal) must pay a certain sum, and 
therefore the office has jurisdiction of all the merry-andrews and 
jack-puddings of every Fair throughout England. The office of 
master of the revels was created under Henry VIII., in 1546." 
" Sir Henry Herbert established his office of Master of the Revels, 
in Tothill Street." 

Page 182. — " Band of Violins." " During the rage for French 
fashions in music which obtained in Charles the Second's reign, 
the ' 24 violons ' were imitated here, in the King's music, and became 
the ' four and twenty fiddlers all of a row ' of nursery rhyme. The 
' vingt-quatre violons ' were formed under Louis XIII., and dissolved 
by decree of Louis XV." (Grove.) Antony a Wood, speaking of 
this same band, says : " Before the Restoration of Charles the Second, 
and especially after, viols begun to be out of fashion, and only 
violins used, as treble violin, tenor, and bass violin ; and the King 
according to the French mode, would have 24 violins playing before 
him while he was at meals, as being more airie and brisk than viols." 
Pepys, on Oct. 1, 1667, writes : " To White Hall ; and there in the 
Boarded Gallery did hear the musick with which the King is 
presented this night by Monsieur Grebus, the Master of his Musick: 
both instrumental (I think twenty-four violins) and vocall : an 
English song upon Peace. But, God forgive me ! I never was so 
little pleased with a concert of music in my life." Possibly the 
presence of Grabu had something to do with the disgust here 
expressed. 

Page 202. — " The prickers." There are many allusions through- 
out these records to the " pricking " of music. " Prick " is a Saxon 
word signifying a " small mark or point." A musical note was 
formerly called a "prick" (hence the term "prick-song"), and a 
dot, following a note, was called a " prick of addition." We find 
in the Cheque Book the phrase, " An admonition with a prick was 
sett upon his head." This means that a small mark or dot, 
equivalent to a bad mark, was set against his name. Grove defines 



NOTES. 485 



"prick-song" as "the name given by old writers upon music to 
divisions or descant upon a Plain-Song or Ground, which were 
written, or pricked down, in contradistinction to those which were 
performed extemporaneously." "The term 'pricking of music- 
bookes ' was formerly employed to express the writing of them. 
Payments for so doing are frequently found in the accounts of 
cathedral and college choirs." 

Page 219. — There is possibly an error in judgment in having 
admitted the last entry on this page as a purely musical item — the 
same remark may apply to the entry concerning bits and stirrups 
on p. 206, but neither entry is lengthy enough to offend against any 
canon of precision. 

Page 254. — " Fetching children from cathedrals." An ancient 
custom existed in the Chapel Royal of "pressing" men and boys 
with good voices for the service of the choir. This practice may be 
traced as far back as the time of Richard III. Commissions "to 
take up well-singing boys for furnishing the Royal Chapels " are 
frequent among the Patent Rolls of the sixteenth and the early part 
of the seventeenth centuries. One of the latest, granted to Dr. N. 
Giles, Aug. 26, 1626, has these words : " Provided always, and 
we straightly charge and command, that none of the said Choristers 
or Children of the Chappell, soe to be taken by force of this 
Commission, shall be used or imployed as Comedians, or Stage 
Players, or to exercise or acte any Stage plaies, Interludes, Comedies, 
or Tragedies ; for that it is not fitt or desent that such as should sing 
the praises of God Almighty should be trained or imployed in such 
lascivious and prophane exercises." A reference to p. 271 will show 
that these pious sentiments were sometimes more honoured in the 
breach than in the observance, and possibly they were in 1626 an 
almost unconscious reflection of that Puritanic spirit which was 
then taking its birth. Queen Elizabeth kept in full force during 
her whole reign the prerogative of issuing placards or writs for 
impressing singing boys for her Chapel, as well in the Capital as at 
Windsor, at least so says Burney. 

Page 297.—" Scaramoucha." In this same year, 1675, Evelyn 
writes in his Diary, under date Sept. 29 : "I saw the Italian 
Scaramucchio act before the King at Whitehall, people giving 
money to come in, which was very scandalous, and never so before 
at Court diversions. Having seene him act before in Italy, many

yeares past, I was not averse from seeing the most excellent of that 
kind of folly." To connect this with the item mentioned in the text 
is purely conjecture, but it seems to me reasonable to do so, both 
from similarities of name and date. 

Page 321. — The will, transcribed out of the French, of Anthony 
Robert. He desires to be buried in Somerset Chapel, where he 
served the Queen Mother (Queen Henrietta Maria) as music master 
for forty years. If he cannot be buried there, he must in any case 
be buried with the full rites of the Roman Church, and he directs 
that a hundred masses should be said for the repose of his soul. 
Hare in his " Walks in London " says that " the building which 
projects into the grounds of Marlborough House and which is 
entered from the roadway into the Park on the left of S. James' 
Palace, is interesting as the Roman Catholic Chapel built by Charles 
the First for his Queen." Canon Sheppard, in his " Memorials 
of S. James' Palace," writes: "The Queen's Chapel was designed 
and built by Inigo Jones. As it was originally intended for the 
Infanta, the Spanish Ambassador laid the first stone in 1623. Its 
completion was due to the importunities of Queen Henrietta Maria." 
In the "Life of Inigo Jones" it is said that he "designed the 
Chapel for the Infanta at Somerset House. The front of the 
Chapel faced the Thames, and presented an harmonious elevation 
of a rustic arcade with five arches, and five well-proportioned 
windows between Corinthian pilasters, duplicated at the other end." 
Another passage in the same " Life" says that Inigo " is said to 
have been the architect of the Queen's Chapel, at St. James." 
Mr. W. B. Donne places the chapel assigned to Queen Henrietta 
Maria in Somerset House, which in 1616, James I., in honour 
of his Danish Queen, commanded to be called Denmark House. 
Stowe's Chronicle, under date 1616, has the entry, " Queen Anne 
feasted the King at her Pallace in the Strand, formerly called 
Somerset-House, and then the King commanded it should no 
more be so called, but that it should from henceforth be called 
Denmarke-House." These somewhat conflicting testimonies seem 
to prove that Queen Henrietta Maria originally had her Chapel 
at S. James' Palace, and that on the advent of Queen Catherine 
of Braganza, she moved it to Somerset House. 

Page 347. — There is here an allusion to the old chimney tax, 
or, as it was called, hearth-money. On March 8, 1689, Evelyn 



NOTES. 4 8 7 



writes : " In the mean time to gratify the people, the Hearth Tax- 
was remitted for ever, but what was intended to supply it, besides 
present great taxes on land, is not named." 

Page 383. — Order for attendance of the violinists at the Chapel 
at Whitehall. On p. 9 of the Chapels Royal Register of Births, 
Marriages, and Deaths, there is the following order, given by the 
Lord Chamberlain to the Closet Keeper of the Chapel, and dated 
1685. It runs: " It is His Maty"- pleasure that H.R.H. Princess 
Anne of Denmark do sit in His Ma')" 5 ' Closet at his Chappell 
Royall at Whitehall upon one side of His Ma*y es - chayre, which 
might remayne in its place and not turn'd," and goes on to say that 
no one is to enter when the Princess is there, except the Clerk of 
the Closet or his deputy, or the Lord Chamberlain, and the Vice- 
Chamberlain. This is confirmed by Evelyn's statement that the 
Princess, " since his Majesty came to the Crown, allways sate in 
the King's closet, and had the same bowings and ceremonies 
applied to the place where she was, as his Majesty had when there 
in person." 

Page 422. — Edward Kinnaston. He was originally one of the 
boys belonging to Davenant's company. It is said that Kynaston 
made "the loveliest lady" for a boy, ever beheld by Pepys. 
Kynaston was twice thrashed, the second time being cudgelled, for 
his impertinent mimicry of Sir Charles Sedley. He remained on 
the stage from 1659 to 1699. " Even at past sixty," Cibber says, 
"his teeth were all sound, white, and even as one would wish to see 
in a reigning toast of twenty." He died in 17 12, and was buried in 
the churchyard of S. Paul's, Covent Garden. " So exalted was his 
reputation that it has since been disputable among the judicious, 
whether any woman that succeeded him so sensibly touched the 
audience as he." " Kinaston the boy had the good turn to appear 
in three shapes : first, as a poor woman in ordinary clothes — then 
in fine clothes, as a gallant; and in them was clearly the prettiest 
woman in the whole house: and lastly, as a man; and then likewise 
did appear the handsomest man in the house." "To the King's 
playhouse, where ' The Heyresse,' notwithstanding Kinaston's 
being beaten, is acted : and they say the King is very angry with 
Sir Charles Sedley for his being beaten, but he do deny it. But 
his " (Kynaston's) " part is done by Beeston." " To the King's 



488 NOTES. 



playhouse — and here we find Kinaston to be well enough to act 
again ; which he do very well, after his beating by Sir Charles 
Sedley's appointment." (Pepys.) 

Page 431. — A new organ for the Chapel at Whitehall. "A new 
organ is set up in the Banquetting House Chappel, with a Dial in 
the middle of it, this being the first of that make ; the other is 
packt up in Boxes there, in order to be sent to Barbadoes." 
(London Post, October 4, 1699.) 

Page 432. — "Mr. Thomas Betterton." — Mrs. Betterton played for 
thirty years the chief female characters, especially in Shakespeare's 
plays, with great success. When " Calisto " was to be played 
at Court in 1674, she was chosen as instructress to the Lady Mary 
and the Lady Anne. After Betterton's death, Queen Anne settled 
on her old teacher a pension of ^"500 per annum. Betterton himself, 
during a long career, played at Drury Lane, Dorset Gardens, 
Lincoln's Inn Fields, and the Opera House in the Haymarket. 
The highest salary he obtained was £5 per week, which included 
£1 by way of pension to his wife, after her retirement in 1694. 
Pepys on several occasions alludes to Betterton's acting, and his 
opinion of his talent may be summed up in the one sentence : " I 
only know that Mr. Betterton is the best actor in the world." With 
regard to this warrant about the wearing of hats, it must be 
remembered that in those days they were more frequently worn 
indoors than people are apt to imagine. Probably the " persons of 
quality," who complained about the musicians being covered in their 
presence, never thought for a moment of removing their own head- 
gear. It can be readily seen that what they wanted was to mark 
once and for all the social difference which they thought should exist 
between themselves and those who contributed to their amusement. 
As to the practice of wearing a hat in houses, and even in churches, 
these two references from Pepys will show the custom of the day : 
" To church, and heard a simple fellow upon the praise of Church 
musique, and exclaiming against men's wearing their hats on in the 
church." (Evidently the hat-wearing in church was a decaying 
remnant of the Puritan regime.) "Home to bed; having got a 
strange cold in my head, by flinging off my hat at dinner, and 
sitting with the wind in my neck."
