Henry Youll (also Youell) was an English Madrigalist and Composer from Suffolk. His work "Canzonets to Three Voyces" (London: Printed by Thomas Este [etc.], 1608). In recent times the work has been published by Stainer and Bell (London, 1923) and various recitals and recordings of the music have been made by Madrigal groups worldwide.
Youll was a tutor to the sons of Edward Bacon; apparently all of the brothers were at Cambridge together, and Youll recalls "what a solace their company was once to you when I nursed them amongst you."
"Canzonets to Three Voyces" is dedicated to the three sons of Edward Bacon, third son of Nicholas Bacon. His Canzonets have charm and individuality, while his choice of words--from Sidney, Ben Jonson, Sir John Davies; indicated a man of taste.
