16471674
an English composer. He was the first of the new generation of English composers at the beginning of the Restoration to rise to prominence. By the age of seventeen Humfrey's anthems were evidently in use and he was sent by the King to study in Paris, probably in January 1665 where he was greatly influenced by music at the French Court. On the basis of the music he wrote on his return, he also assimilated the more expressive vocal style of Carissimi.
