Justification
The members of the King's Musik generally included the leading musicians active in England. For most of the group's existence, all were members of court music ensembles, so would have professional collaboration continuously on a daily basis. Music performed would include that composed and performed for casual activities, court masques, theatre, and other entertainments at court, so would involve collaboration with leading playwrights, poets, painters, and architects, as well as members of the nobility and other courtiers. Many members were directly related to each other, so also would belong to family groups. The position of Master of the King's Musik was established in 1626 with the appointment of Nicholas Lanier (1588–1666). The King's Band (ensemble) was dissolved in 1901, but the court continues to have a Master of the King's Music until this day.
