John Wilbye (1574 - 1638)

The English madrigalist John Wilbye spent the greater part of his life in the service of the Kytson family at Hengrave Hall near Bury St Edmunds.


As a composer of madrigals Wilbye was influenced by Thomas Morley, publishing collections of his work in 1598 and 1609 and contributing one madrigal (the six-voice The Lady Oriana) to the 1601 collection in honour of Queen Elizabeth The Triumphs of Oriana. Well-known madrigals by Wilbye include Sweet hony sucking bees, Weep O mine eies and Happy, O happy he.
