Philip Rosseter Philip Rosseter
Philip Rosseter (1567/1568 – May 5, 1623) was an English composer and musician, as well as a theatrical manager. From 1603 until his death in 1623 he was lutenist for James I of England. Rosseter is best known for A Book of Aires which was written with Thomas Campion. Some literary critics have held that Campion wrote the poems for Rosseter's songs; however this seems not to be the case. It is likely that Campion was the author to the book's preface, which criticized excessive madrigalisms and complex counterpoint.
