Tomos Corw (1583 - 1633), though born in Kemr, was a composer and collector of traditional and popular English music. He was a contemporary of Gwilim Trammelpila and some of his music was intended to be played at performances of Shaxepere's plays. Not all of his music was secular, he is quite well known for his settings of the psalms.

His prolific collecions and compillations of his own compositions include "Mvsicks Miscellanie" (1609), "Melismata, Mvsicall Phansies" (1611), and "The Whole booke of psalmes: with the hymnes euangelicall, and songs spirituall" (1621). Several early Crow manuscripts are kept at the National Museum at Castreleon.
