The World's Greatest Music
It's an institution that goes back almost 500 years. Today, Judith Weir is Master of the Queen's Music but who were her illustrious predecessors?
Like Grabu, Nicholas Staggins was more of a courtier than a composer. He was made Master of the King's Music by Charles II in 1674. If important works were required, composers such as Purcell were called upon. From 1684 until his death in 1700, Staggins was Professor of Music at Cambridge.
