Construction, Highlights and Features

This page gives a history of the construction and updates to this site. It highlights the new features of 'The Robert Jones, Philip Rosseter Web Site!' - This site was made by Patrick Thomas Connolly.


Launch
I first launched my personal web site in about September of 1999.
One of the original reasons for my site was that I was looking for work and thus I posted my resume with an animation resume and a portfolio (not too developed). Now it is developing into a site with a wider scope.

Some of the features this personal web site, are;

- 'The Tama Pages' are a feature on the Japanese music group called 'Tama'. The Tama Pages have rare English writings on this unusual group.

- 'Put your Bum To Work' is a journey in poetry & music by myself as I travel all over Canada.' The Phreap Site gives some information about this unfinished book. Prepare yourself for a new vision.

- Some photos of some special dogs and cats

- Some unfinished projects;
-- A blurb about my Robert Jones project.
-- A blurb about 'The Raving Biatrical Rider' an animated film I have been working on.
-- 'The Art of Patrick Thomas Connolly' - A blurb about a personal digital portfolio.


First Update!
Launching The Robert Jones, Philip Rosseter Web Site.

December 27, 2001

On December 27, 2001, I threw up a few pages, and created the Robert Jones / Philip Rossetter site, to celebrate the 400 year anniversary of their 1601 books before the year 2001 ended.

Some of the features that this new 'Robert Jones, Philip Rosseter Web Site' started with were;

- A facsimile of Robert Jones's hand writing
It is not well known that there is a sample of Robert Jones's hand writing. This was reproduced from a manuscript from the Folger Shakespeare Library. Robert Jones, in his own hand, had written a song to the text of a poem in a 'A Poetical Rhapsodie'(1602). Shakespearean songs are titled after their first line so the title of the song is "The love of change hath changed the world throughout."

The Complete Works Of Robert Jones - This comprehensive list of the compositions of Robert Jones that can be found nowhere else in the world. It now lists 136 pieces set by Robert Jones.

Pages cataloging information about Robert Jones's 'Ultimun Vale or The Third Booke of Ayres' (1605). (It was a start and it has been updated but there is still a lot of work to do.)


Second Update!
On July 6, 2002, I launched the first update to this 'Robert Jones, Philip Rosseter Web Site'.

The Thomas Campion page of the site, with all its links, was the greatest feature to the site, at that time.

More pages cataloging information about Robert Jones's 'Ultimun Vale or The Third Booke of Ayres (1605).


Third Update!
In August 2002, I put up a page featuring blues guitarist Ryuji Fujihara.
Fourth Update!
The Second Update of 'The Robert Jones, Philip Rosseter Web Site' was posted on November 4, 2002. The new pages (some of them unfinished) were;

A Robert Jones Time Line - the most important of addition is this page that publishes three never before published facts [as far as I know] about Robert Jones;

- - First that there is evidence that Robert Jones participated in the funeral of Henry the Prince of Wales to whom he dedicated his third book to.

- - Secondly an entry, from a council meeting on June 22, 1613, indicates that maybe Robert Jones played at a mask.

- - Thirdly there may be some unknown songs composed by Robert Jones in the twenty dance tunes of The Ramsay Manuscript, Douce 280, at the Bodleian library.

A page on the fine English Madrigalists, Francis Pilkington (-1562 - 1638). (At the moment Pilkington is covered as well as Philip Rosseter)

A page on Robert Jones's 'The First Booke of Songes and Ayres' (1600). (Still a lot of work to do.)

Improvements to the pages about Robert Jones's Third book and his Madrigal book.
A page on Robert Jones's involvement on the Madrigals of The Triumphs of Oriana.
A page on Robert Jones's involvement in Sir William Leighton's 'The Tears and Lamentations of a Sorrowful Soul.'
An unfinished page on Robert Jones's Printers, Booksellers and License Owners.


Fifth Update!
A third Update of 'The Robert Jones, Philip Rosseter Web Site' was a small addition.
On February 9, 2003 I launched the first 'Hit Counter' to find if anyone is reading this.
I also posted some of the lyrics and discography to Philip Rosseter's book of ayres (1601).
Sixth Update!
A fourth update of 'The Robert Jones, Philip Rosseter Web Site' was a big improvement to my site and it was posted on March 31, 2003. The new or improved pages are;

Philip Rosseter - finally some new and some much improved pages on Rosseter but still a lot of way to go.

A page on English poet Francis Davison (?1575-?1619). Robert Jones set many of his poems to music.

New pages on Robert Jones's The First Booke of Songes and Ayres (1600). (much improved but still a lot of work to do.)

New pages on Robert Jones's 'The first booke of Madrigals' (1607) with an essay written by me called "Robert Jones, A Failed Madrigalist, A Successful Controversialist (A Few Observations On the Madrigal Book Of Robert Jones)" A hit counter

Also on this update was an improved page on Robert Jones's involvement on the Madrigals of The Triumphs of Oriana and I disconnected the rough, embarrassingly written, unfinished pages on Philip Kingman and Richard Jones.

Animators Pages

I also posted my Care Bear web page, 'The First Care Bear Film 'The Land Without Feelings.' An Animators Recollections. Find out about this Care Bears' film's place in history.

I also made a tiny page on the animated film 'Nilus the Sandman: The Boy who Dreamed Christmas'.


Seventh Update!
The fifth update of 'The Robert Jones, Philip Rosseter Web Site' was a small tweak to fix a few things left off the last update and it was posted on April 7, 2003. This page of features was posted as was;

A page on Robert Jones's 'The Second Booke of Songs and Ayres' (1601). (Just a start and still a lot of work to do.)



- Small Updates! -
I have not updated this page since April 7, 2003 so here is an update to catch up on some links.

When you start a web site one might tend to put it up in big linked sections. With a structure up I have gone about improving it page by page. I decided to try to make longer pages rather than more pages. I am long overdue to put some links to some of my newer and improved pages. - Written & compiled April, 2, 6, 7 & 8, 2011.


In about 2003 & 2004 I was able to do a good write up Robert Jones' only madrigal book: 'The First Set of Madrigals' 1607.
Part 1 - Dedication, Madrigals I and II. Madrigal .
Part 2 - Madrigals III. to VI.
Part 3 - The songs that are in number but four parts - Madrigals VII to XII.
Part 4 - Madrigals XIII to XVII (Songs for five voices).
Part 5 - Madrigals XVIII to XXVI (Songs for five, six, seven and eight voices).
In about 2004 I did a little study on Richard Alison. (Updated June 12, & August 4/5/6/8/11/12, 2004 )
- A Little Information on Richard Allison
and, A List of Works by Richard Allison
It is a rather long page hiding under a Philip Rosseter song page;
Philip Rosseter's A Book of Ayres (1601) Ayres XVIII. WHAT IS A DAY and XIX. KIND IN UNKINDNESS
In 2004 I did more work on;
Ultimun Vale or The Third Booke of Ayres 1605, by Robert Jones.

Part 6 - the last web page of this ' The Third Booke, Airs XIX to XXI'. Posted c. June, 2002.


Around the beginning of 2005 I did some work & study on Francis Pilkington.
The Works Of, English Lutenist and Madrigalists, Francis Pilkington is rather comprehensive
and my page on Pilkington's Lyrics also gives some discographies and notes from Edward Doughtie's Book.
For Francis Pilkington's Life, I did a quick update on March 29 2011 to say "this is the unfinished junk page that I do not really want you to look at".

As TrickTOlly I joined SoundClick. - 03/19/2005. - It has taken too much of my time.


Later you could embed songs from there and so I have added more colour to this site by adding audio.

- Robert Jones and Philip Rosseter Actor Friends -

Actor Richard Jones was perhaps one of the top 20 English Elizabethan actors in a group that would include William Shakespeare. Jones and Rosseter took over the Child acting company that was run by Richard Jones and Robert Browne

A Shakespearian playwright (from whom we have no surviving plays) was wandering actors Philip Kingham. He must have been a best friend of Robert Jones. I am now bosting that I may have the only web page about him.

I did a little work and reconnected the rough, embarrassingly written, unfinished pages on Philip Kingman (updated on August 2, 2010) and Robert Browne (First updated July 11, 2009).


2010 was the 400 year anniversary of Robert Jones's 5th (& last) booke,
The muses gardin for delights or fifth booke of ayers, 1610
. In celebration I recorded a handfull of song and updated my web pages for this book.

THERE WAS A WILY LAD' which has a reproduction of the originally published song. It was updated August 9, 2005 and last update August 4, 2010 when it was divided into this smaller Parts.
