John Baldwin was a lay clerk at St George's Chapel, Windsor in 1575 and became a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal in 1598.
The so-called 'Baldwin Partbooks', held at Christ Church, Oxford, were his creation - a very personal collection, representing his individual tastes and interests from a wealth of English and Continental polyphony and consort music. As in their previous collaboration, an exploration of the similarly conceived partbooks of Robert Dow, the Marian Consort and Rose Consort of Viols have kept faith with Baldwin's own intentions, bringing to light some of the rarer gems preserved by this great advocate and music-lover and providing the listener with 'such sweete musicke: as dothe much delite yeelde'.

The Marian Consort has to date released four recordings with Delphian Records which have met with considerable critical acclaim. The ensemble's most recent release, of a Christmas mass and motets by Jean Mouton, Cristobal de Morales and Annibale Stabile (DCD34145), was 'Christmas Choice' in BBC Music magazine.
