Records of English court music, Volume 6
Records of English Court Music aims to present a new calendar of the material from the Lord Chamberlain's papers, first published in Henry Cart de Lafontaine's The King's Musick (London 1909), and also to incorporate related but hitherto unpublished records of English Court music and musicians. It also supersedes the remarkable pioneering work of Willibald Nagel: Annalen der englischen Hofmusik von der Zeit Heinrichs VIII, bis zum Tode Karls I. (1509-1649), Leipzig, 1894, re-examining and newly transcribing the sources he consulted.Volume VI is concerned with the reign of Elizabeth I (1558-1603). As usual the main calendar gathers up a miscellany of items, principally wardrobe accounts from the Lord Chamberlain's papers, docquet books from the Signet and Privy Seal Offices, patents, New years' gifts and Lay Subsidy Rolls. The only items in the Lord Chamberlain's papers (and therefore published by Lafontaine) relate to the provision of liveries. Survival of other relevant documents is patchy, but even so it is possible to build from them the first really comprehensive picture of the Elizabethan court music establishment.
