Public concerts owe their direct en
couragement to John Banister, who
had won fame by his playing on the
VicMn - and who succeeded the cele
bru ed Baltzar "as leader of Charles IL's
bsuJ. of twenty-fojir violins. Pepys, in
an entry in his diary for . February,
ICC", tells us the court gossip of the
day "how the king's viallln Banister
Is i-iad that the king hath a French
m:.'i come to be chief of some part of
the king's musique."
i:.inister3 concerts at the close of the
year 1672 were advertised In the Lon
flon Gazette as follows: "These are to
give notice that at Mr. John Banister's
hor.se (now called the Mnslck School),
over against the George tavern In
White Fryers, the present Monday will
be musick performed by excellent mas
ters, beginning precisely at 4 of the
clock in the afternoon, and every after
noon for the future, precisely at the
Bame hour." , '
Four years later on we read again:
"At the Academy in Little Lincoln's
Inn Fields will begin the first part of
the Parley of Instruments, composed
by Mr. John Banister." The admission
was at this time as a rule a shilling,
and these concerts seem to have been
held pretty regularly down to within a
short time of Banisters death, which
took place in 1679. Chambers' Journal.

doubt that his Influence assisted In the
establishment of the service under the
auspices of a royal decree.

known from the man who organized
them as "Shillibeers," and the conduc
