Daniel Bacheler

March 16, 1574 - January 29, 1619
composed during the Renaissance period
Though in our own time the name of John Dowland has become the emblem of English lute playing, Daniel Bacheler may claim to be his equal; Dowland's own son Robert called Bacheler "the right perfect Musition." Born the fifth of ten children in a Buckinghamshire farmhouse, Bacheler apparently showed musical talent at an early age. At seven, he became a musical apprentice to his uncle (who happened to be Queen Elizabeth's dancing-master in Westminster). At 15 Bacheler entered the service of Francis Walsingham, the English secretary of state. Bacheler's earliest surviving music was copied, probably by the composer himself at age 16, into a set of partbooks for Walsingham's courtiers; this music already shows Bacheler's stylistic mastery. His esteem among the English nobility is also evident in his participation in Philip Sydney's funeral: Bacheler was riding the knight's warhorse! In 1590, Bacheler joined the household of Robert Deveraux, the Earl of Essex (who married Sydney's widow), and he probably continued to serve Essex up to the Earl's execution in 1601. It was in this decade (Bacheler's third) that a song of his, which set one of the Earl's sonnets, was sung for Queen Elizabeth herself.

Lady Essex proceeded to her third husband, and Bacheler proceeded to his third and most spectacular musical appointment. He traveled with his Lady to the court of Queen Anne, made her particular acquaintance, and was inducted into royal service. Bacheler was not even appointed as a court lutenist (the kind of position dour Dowland sought in vain for so many years); he was brought into her court as a groom of the Queen's privy chamber, at an extraordinary salary of four to eight times a mere lutenist's pay. He played music and wrote it, attended Queen Anne, and sometimes served as a royal secretary. In 1607 he applied for, and was awarded a coat of arms -- three dragons' heads, the symbol of Anne's native Denmark. Bacheler composed at least 50 pieces of lute music while in the Queen's service, and seems to have continued experimenting stylistically, and growing technically, until quite late in his life. It may have been a court epidemic of smallpox that claimed Bacheler's life in 1619. He was buried close to the Queen's Greenwich property, and his brothers and nephew fought bitterly over the "considerable property in several dioceses" he had accumulated by the time of his untimely death. ~ Timothy Dickey, Rovi

johnnyohania n : I think what you are hearing is the left hand sliding on the strings to reach the notes quickly (I happens on guitar as well).

...OK, back to the music. Let's talk about Paul O'Dette. I am a big fan for years, however, my only complaint is his heavy breathing. Couldn't they have miked his lute differently so that it wouldn't pick up his breathing?

Wikipedia states that he was born in Buckinghamsh i r e , which is in England. It also states that he was baptized in 1572, and according to common tradition at the time would have been an infant born in that year.

How could he (Daniel Bacheler) have been born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania , USA in 1574 when Bucks county was founded in 1682 by William Penn, for whom the state of Pennsylvania is named (Latin for "Penn's Woods")? As an aside, the Pilgrims (Puritians) from England landed in what is now Plymouth, MA in 1620 and the English settlement of Jamestown was founded in 1607 in Virginia.
