Robert Johnson (c.1582-1633) was associated with The King's Men from c.1610-c.1617, and wrote several songs for the later plays of William Shakespeare. The extent and nature of these performances remains something of a mystery, but Johnson was the most significant composer who has been connected to Shakespeare.
