Life

Born: c. 1580

Died: 1648

English composer. Probably the son of Thomas East. Provided a madrigal to The Triumphs of Oriana (1601); took a B.Mus. at Cambridge in 1606; perhaps served the Hatton family for a time; cited as a clerk at Ely Cathedral, 1609–14. He was master of the choristers at Lichfield by 1618; supplied an anthem for St. John's College, Oxford, in 1620. He issued seven publications: two madrigal books (1604, 1606); two varied collections of madrigals, consort songs, and anthems, the earlier print also containing a series of viol fancies (1610, 1618); two books exclusively for viol (1618–38); and a collection of anthems and consort songs. Service music and other anthems remain in manuscript.
