Galliard  [1'50]

Introduction
Very little is known about Webster, who flourished from 1621 to 1636. He may have been the nephew of John Webster the playwright. His father, George Webster, was a travelling musician and Maurice must have spent much of his early life abroad. He succeeded Rosseter as lutenist at court, and this galliard is one of an incomplete suite of dances to be found in The British Museum (BM18940–23).
