Ritual music for the Office and for associated non-liturgical devotions appears in no comparable body of work by an earlier English composer - and from later composers, only in the surviving output of Tallis and Sheppard. Typically, these pieces alternate polyphony and plainsong, not recorded in the sources, but here supplied from the Salisbury Antiphonal, Gradual or Processional. Four of Taverner's secular songs are also included. Quemadmodum are also included.
