OLD HALL AND ROY HENRY
A caveat: Nothing that has been said about the distinctiveness and insularity of English music in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, or about its stylistic continuity, should be taken to imply that English composers were unaware of continental developments, or hostile to them. On the contrary, by the end of the fourteenth century, when evidence of English musical activity becomes much more abundant, it is clear that there were plenty of English composers who kept well abreast even of the most arcane ars subtilior techniques and paraded them proudly in their own work. Even they, however, were sure to put an English spin on whatever they appropriated.
