Description

Details

This second volume of Martin Peerson's complete works is mainly devoted to the twenty-four songs published in 1620. Fourteen of these (including "Upon my lap my soveraigne sits", Peerson's only work well known today) are in four parts; eight are in five; and two (including an ambitious setting of Ben Jonson's poem "See, O see who is heere come a-maying" composed for the royal May-day celebrations in 1604) are in six. Mingling pieces in a thoroughly madrigalian all-vocal style with others involving instruments (ideally a consort of viols, or a keyboard instrument or a lute, or even a solo bass viol), this collection illustrates the variety of English song during the reign of James I. Also included in this edition are six songs from manuscript sources: four three-part arrangements of songs from Private Musicke and two others which may be by Peerson. For various combinations of treble, alto, tenor and bass voices, plus instruments. Set of instrumental parts, ISMN 979-0-57039-004-5.
