Abstract

Evidence for the survival of the twelve-course lute in Georgian England is to be found in the seven pieces in the autograph manuscript of the Reverend Robert Creighton II (1636/7–1734), prebendary (from 1667), and later precentor (from 1674) of Wells Cathedral. This article reviews what is known of Creighton’s life and family. It considers his musical activities and the music club in Wells that he was connected to. His seven lute pieces are reviewed and possible connections with Thomas Mace are posited.
