In 1581 he entered Peterhouse, Cambridge, staying there until 1584 but taking no degree. In 1586 he was admitted to Gray's Inn, where the company was literary as well as legal. He qualified as a doctor of medicine at Caen University in 1605. His fame rests as much on his poetry as his music. He composed more than a hundred songs with lute accompaniment.
