The French Connection
Lute recital by Willem Mook
King of Hearts, Norwich
7.30pm, Thursday 12 August 2010

Lute Music in the Lives of
Lord Herbert of Cherbury and Constantine Huygens

Edward Herbert served for some years as an ambassador in Paris, his famous Lute Book (nowadays in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge) is one of the most important anthologies of lute music from the period 1600-1640 and it is a unique document of the influence of French music in English aristocratic circles.
Constantine Huygens, the younger of the two, claimed to have written some 800 compositions, of which a large number were for solo lute. Unfortunately a mere 40 songs with the lute of a very high level remain under the title Pathodia sacra et profana (printed in Paris 1647).
Both Herbert and Huygens seem to have had a clear preference for French lute music. In particular they shared an admiration for the music of Jacques Gautier. This temperamental French lute player entered the English court towards 1620, and Lord Herbert of Cherbury's Lute Book happens to be by far the most important source of Jacques Gautier's highly characteristic music, which is given a prominent role in this programmme.
Of a slightly older generation was the French Huguenot Nicolas Vallet, who chose his domicile in Amsterdam around 1612. His Secret des Muses (printed in 1616) is a remarkable fusion of lute music of French, Dutch and English styles. His music shows his high standard as a lute composer and a certain preference for the more popular repertoire, which gives his music a lighter touch than the more aristocratic repertoire of the Cherbury Lute Book.
