John Browne (fl. ca. 1490) was an English composer of the Tudor period. Despite the high level of skill displayed in Browne's compositions, few of his works survive; the entirety of Browne's extant music is found in the Eton Choirbook, in which he is the best-represented contributor. His choral music is distinguished by innovative scoring, false relations, and unusually long melodic lines, and has been called by early music scholar Peter Phillips "subtle, almost mystical" and "extreme in ways which apparently have no parallel, either in England or abroad."
Little is known of Browne's life. A John Browne from Coventry, believed to be the composer, was elected scholar of Eton in July 1467; he is described as having been 14 years of age at the time of his appointment, making him a slightly younger contemporary of Walter Lambe, who was likely at Eton during Browne's tenure. Nothing is known of his later career or death.Читать далее в Википедии...
