Editorial Reviews

In the early sixteenth century, the playing of wind instruments was traditionally the domain of German and Flemish musicians. However, when a storm forced King Philip the Fair to put ashore in England along with his considerable musical retinue, Henry VIII was inspired to expand The King's Musick. By the end of the century, the situation was reversed: England was the nation to which all others aspired and her players were to be found across Europe. The music on this recording comes from this glorious period of pageantry and national pride, and fully displays the enchanting sound and virtuosic scope of the cornett and sackbutt, remarkable instruments seldom heard today.

This CD is just an enjoyment - lush early music for those who are not (or are) knowledgeable about the period

A very fine recording from the English early music group His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts. The group is excellent and they display considerable virtuosity in playing this English music from the 16th and 17th Centuries. Most of the music is played by two cornetts, three or four sackbuts, and a keyboardist.

There are 31 tracks on this CD including musicy by such composers as Henry VIII, John Bull, and Matthew Locke among others - including several pieces by that very well known composer Anonymous.
