Quote from Metronome:
Compiled to complement the exhibition Orazio Gentileschi at the Court of Charles I held in London, Bilbao and Madrid in 1999 this collection is a broad introduction to the musical splendour and ambition of Charles I's court. It includes the work of Nicholas Lanier, the First Master of the King's Musick, who was reputed to be the lover of Artemisia Gentileschi, the daughter of the painter Orazio Gentileschi who was the Court Painter; William Lawes, the greatest English composer of the 17th century, who died valiantly in the Royalist cause at the siege of Chester; and contemporary settings of the poetry of John Donne by Corkine, Hilton and Sumarte.
