Richard Pygott

This English author of predominantly sacred pieces was a teacher in the house of Thomas Wolsey (Henry VIII’s Lord Chancellor). He trained the children from the estate’s chapel choir and found the attention from the Ruler through among Pygott’s previous praiseworthy learners in the King’s very own chapel. Out of this interest Pygott was granted several royal mementos and became a Gentleman from the Chapel Royal where he offered until his loss of life. He was present in the funeral of Henry VIII, the coronation of Edward VI as well as the receiver of a notice from Princess Elizabeth in 1552. Handful of Pygott’s compositions survive but he’s described by Morley in “Plaine and Easie Intro to Practicall Musick.” The music made up by Pygott proven complexity, an intensive knowledge of the methodologies of his period, and a sonorous melodic range.
