Early English Church Music 9: Thomas Tomkins: Musica Deo Sacra: II

£19.99

Product description

Early English Church Music (EECM) is published by Stainer & Bell on behalf of the British Academy. The aim of the series is to make available sacred music by English composers from the earliest times to the middle of the seventeenth century, in accordance with the highest scholarly standards. The first volume of the series, founded in 1961, was published in 1963, and in the following half-century its pre-eminence as a source of repertoire was confirmed through publication of major works by Dering, Gibbons, Sheppard, Tallis, Taverner, Tomkins, Tye, White and others.
 
Published posthumously in 1668, probably by the composer's son Nathaniel, Musica Deo Sacra is a monumental collection of the work of Thomas Tomkins, pupil of William Byrd and a major contributor to the wealth of Anglican music produced in the half-century before the Commonwealth. In this second volume of his work, all but two of the 14 anthems employ words from the psalms. Many of the verse sections require great virtuosity of execution, and the variety of styles shows the breadth of this composer's expressive range.

This volume includes an introduction, notes on performance and an editorial commentary by Bernard Rose.

Very good condition. Used lightly if at all. Some rubbing to head and tail of spine and minor bending at corners. Pages are clean without notes or highlighting. Spine is uncreased and binding is tight.
