Description:
Full colour facsimile with introductory study by David Fallows

Published in August 2014, the Henry VIII Book is a superb full-colour facsimile of British Library Add. MS 31922, which contains many works by the Henry VIII. Over 260 full colour page images plus an introduction of 85 pages by David Fallows, who examines the book with fresh eyes revealing considerable new information about the content and context of this manuscript. 

Thirty-three compositions by HenryVIII alongside a wide selection of other music from the first years of the sixteenth century are all collected together in a manuscript that probably contains the repertory of Henry’s own music-making sessions.

He was not quite eighteen years old when he became king in 1509. But in the next decade, before the difficulties began, his court was one of the most brilliant in Europe. And he himself was always eager to show off his abilities as a musician.

The book was almost certainly not made for him: its decorations are too modest. But it is easy to imagine that it wasfor one of the favoured subjects who made music with him. It is clearly written and easy to read, a perfect size for three instrumentalists or singers. Some of the pieces are textless and evidently intended for instrumental performance; others do have text but were probably also for instruments alone; and some are three-voice songs with all three voices clearly texted.

The accompanying Introduction by David Fallows includes individual comments on every piece -“ explaining any notational difficulties, summarizing the available literature, sometimes offering new and unusual views on them. The In-troduction also includes discussions of Henry as a composer and what we know of his musical activities.

273 pp full colour + 85 pp introduction, indexes etc. Format 213 x 310 mm (98% of full size) Full colour facsimile on heavy matt art paper, hard bound in buckram
