Richard Mico (c. 1590-1661) was born into a family that was originally French (Micault). He seems to have spent most of his working life under the patronage of one Lord Petre, who had a country house in Essex (Thorndon Hall). Thirty-two fantasies in from two to five parts have survived, and seven mostly very fine pavans (two four-part pavans have already appeared in this series as EML 146) - a complete edition of his instrumental music is in Musica Britannica LXV.
