Thomas Tomkins United Kingdom
Thomas Tomkins (1572–1656) was a Welsh-born composer of Cornish origins of the late Tudor and early Stuart period. In addition to being one of the prominent members of the English Madrigal School he was a skilled composer of keyboard and consort music. He was born in St David's in Pembrokeshire. His father was also a musician, a vicar choral of the cathedral of St Davids, and organist there; his three half-brothers were musicians as well, but none attained the fame of Thomas.
