Quick Reference

(b ?1591; flc.1641). English composer. He was a minor canon of St Paul's Cathedral in the early 17th century, and compiled The First Book of Selected Church Musick (1641). This was the only printed collection of services and anthems for English cathedral use to appear between 1565 and the Civil War; it draws upon the Elizabethan as well as the Jacobean repertory. Between about 1625 and 1638 Barnard also collected a large body of English liturgical music in manuscript, and was himself the composer of two of the pieces.
