John Bull was a noted 16th century English Composer who wrote a good deal of keyboard music, including this contribution to the famous Fitzwilliam Virginal Book, a primary source of keyboard music dated from approximately 1562 to 1612, during the late Elizabethan and early Jacobean periods in England. 

Elgar Howarth's idiomatic arrangement of "Kings Hunting Jigge" for brass makes the piece available to modern players with consummate skill.

The arrangement made regular appearances on the musical programme of the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble, perhaps the first and most famous brass ensemble in the world.
