Thomas Morley

Born: 1558. Died: 1602. Lived in: England

The composer, organist, and theorist Thomas Morley (ca. 1557-ca. 1602) was the chief English exponent of the Italian madrigal tradition.

Thomas Morley was born about 1557 and, sometime between 1602 and 1608, died after a long illness. During his early years he studied composition with William Byrd and organ under Sebastian Westcote. In 1588 Morley received a bachelor of music degree from Oxford and took the position of organist at St. Giles, Cripplegate. In 1591 he became organist at St. Paul's, joining the Chapel Royal the following year. About this time Morley married; he and his wife, Susan, had three children between 1596 and 1600.

Thomas Morley : Phyllis and Amaryllis

Just like many pop songs of today, English Renaissance madrigals, the pop songs of their time, mention loved ones by name. Two of the most frequent to crop up are Phyllis and Amaryllis, both names derived from Greek mythology and obviously popular in the 16th century. These five charming madrigals all refer to ladies named Phyllis and Amaryllis, including one which has both! The collection includes: Adieu, sweet Amaryllis (John Wilbye), Fair Phyllis (John Farmer), I love, alas, I love thee (Thomas Morley), See, see the shepherds' queen (Thomas Tomkins), Though Amaryllis dance in green (William Byrd).
