For the Concentus Musicus Minnesota programs Maud made over fifty arrangements of dances and Minnesinger and troubadour songs, and transcribed many polyphonic works from manuscript. All his working life Dr. Maud has been involved with music education, teaching music theory and history and directing choirs in college and university and in churches. Arthur was born in 1861 in Blackburn, Lancashire, England. He entered Spurgeon's College and as a student preacher took services at the Baptist Chapel in Wraysbury. There he met his future wife, Maud Doulton, a relative of both Henry Doulton the pottery manufacturer and William Thomas Buckland the Wraysbury auctioneer. Arthur then left to become a missionary in China before returning to live in Wraysbury after his retirement.

An early music ensemble is a musical ensemble that specializes in performing early music of the European classical tradition from the Baroque era and earlier - broadly, music produced before about 1750.

Arthur Maud (born December 29, 1932) Anglo-American composer, conductor, musicologist. Born and raised in Airedale, the West Riding of Yorkshire, England, Maud studied singing at an early age and was chorister and soloist in local churches until the family emigrated to the USA in 1948. He has studied composition in Germany (Hochschule für Musik, Munich 1956-7)) and America with Dominic Argento, Paul Fetler, Harald Genzmer, Carl Orff, Leroy Robertson, Leo Sowerby and others.

This elegant collection includes assortments of sacred choral and instrumental pieces from the High Renaissance and Baroque eras including pieces by Bach, Purcell, Monteverdi and Handel. Celestial Christmas is performed by two of the world's most highly esteemed ensembles-Concentus Musicas Wien and the Leonhardt-Consort.
