ROBERT RAMSEY  

(1595 - 1644)

The Scottish composer and organist Robert Ramsey seems to have been descended from a family of court trumpeters who followed James VI of Scotland to London, when he became James I of England. He graduated at Trinity College, Cambridge in 1616, remaining there as organist and choirmaster for the rest of his life.

Vocal Music

Ramsey wrote liturgical music, including verse and full anthems for the Anglican liturgy, with Latin settings that reflect the new style of Monteverdi. His secular music includes madrigals, consort and continuo songs, and dialogues.
