Consort of Musicke (Early Music Ensemble)
Anthony Rooley (Μαέστρος)

Weelkes, Thomas (1576–1623)

What Have the Gods

Alleluia, I heard a voice

Hosanna to the Son of David

Gloria in excelsis Deo

As Vesta was from Latmos hill descending

Hark All Ye Lovely Saints

Like two proud armies

All people clap your hands

O happy he whom Thou protect’st

O how amiable are thy dwellings

Cease now delight

O Jonathan

When David Heard

Death hath deprived me

Noel, Adieu Thou Court’s Delight

Cease sorrows now

Thule, the period of cosmography

O care, thou wilt despatch me

Lord, to thee I make my moan


“Anthony Rooley’s Consort in repertoire they do so well….This anthology might carry the subtitle of ‘Weelkes’ Greatest Hits’: from Thule to When David heard, the best-known pieces are all here, and there is no better-rounded overview of his music than this : familiar ideas and topics recur in different pieces…(Their) lighter touch has considerable charm…in the madrigals and canzonets such as As Vesta was or Harke all ye lovely Saints, and in the songs of mourning they find many affecting touches….all in all it is a pleasure to welcome…” (Gramophone)

“The expressive qualities of Weelkes’ madrigals is well conveyed by The Consort of Musicke. There is much attention to the text, and the declamatory elements are also brought out convincingly. I am a little less enthusiastic about the blending of the voices.
