In nomine a 5


John Ward (c1589-1638) came from Canterbury and was a chorister in the cathedral, and then attended the grammar school there; he then joined the musical establishment of Sir Henry Fanshawe. He composed and published madrigals but wrote more music for viol consort, which was very popular both in his lifetime and after, to judge by the sources. Most of his five-part consorts must have been composed before 1619 when Francis Tregian died, who was one of the principal copyists. This is his only In nomine in five parts and shows the form still in robust health nearly a century after its birth.
