Thomas Lupo (1571-1627) was one of the major English chamber music composers of the period. Together with Coprario, Gibbons, and Alfonso Ferrabosco II, he was employed by the prince Henry & Charles. This was where English chamber music style heading into the 1600s was largely formed.
Although himself a violinist, Lupo's consort music also works well on viols.
