JOHN BENNETT, one of the finest English madrigalists, whose first set of madrigals appeared in 1599. In '1614 Ravens-croft, in a collection including five of his madrigals, writes a eulogy which reads like an obituary notice. The first set of madrigals was reprinted in 1845 by the Musical Antiquarian Society. Bennett's works consist of this set and several contributions to such collections as the Triumphs of Oriana, and to various collections of church music.
