About Thomas Lupo
Thomas Sr. served in the courts of Elizabeth I and James I as a musician and in the newly created post of "Composer to the Violins", starting in 1619. He received his first appointment, to replace Francesco de Venice in May, 1591, and was given an appointment for life by a warrant dated May 4, 1592(18). Thomas left behind a considerable body of work, some of which has been recorded(19). Peter Lupo's son Thomas was also a musician and composer(20), and some confusion exists as to which Thomas authored which piece, though Jennings concludes that most of the surviving works were written by Joseph's son(21), attributing differences in style to the evolution of the elder composer's technique rather than two composers.
