A harpist, named as 'Darbei' (possibly Derby? He may have worked in England first; or he may have been an Englishman) Skotte - the latter implies he was a Scotsman - was engaged at the Stuart Court in England for Danish service on 15/3/1622, with effect from 25/9/1621. We don't know how long he served.
