William Brade (1560 - 1630) was an English composer, violinist, and viol player of the late Renaissance and early Baroque eras, mainly active in northern Germany. He was the first Englishman to write a canzona, an Italian form, and probably the first to write a piece for solo violin.
These pieces are somewhat similar to Adsons Courtly Masquing Ayres, though a little more polished, Brades pieces provide satisfying polyphonic settings of some of the more popular masque tunes of the period such as Cupararee (Grays Inn).
