Historical context

Pastime With Good Company, also known as King's Ballad, is an English folk song written by King Henry VIII at the beginning of the 16 century, shortly after his coronation. It is regarded as the most famous of his compositions, and it became a popular song in England and other European countries during the Renaissance. It is thought to be written for Catherine of Aragon. The early years of Henry VIII's reign mark distinctive character of exuberance and extravagances in English court, made possible by the political stability of the kingdom and the wealth of the state's finances. Royal banquets and feasts were held on a continual basis, as were outdoor sports and pastimes, such as hunting, hawking, and jousting and archery tournaments. The Young King himself was a skilled sportsman, excelling in horse riding, archery, wrestling and real tennis. Song was pen during this period, and presented general praise to all these entertainments and diversions, depicting the general state of mind of leisure and unconcern that prevailed in royal court at the time. At the same time, text provides moral justification for all this merriment: Company is preferable to idleness; the latter breeds vice.
