Richard Pygott was master of Cardinal Wolsey’s household chapel choir and later a member of the royal household chapel under Henry VIII. His setting of Salve regina—one of the longest votive antiphons to survive—is similar in style to his Mass Veni sancte spiritus (RCM119): melismatic and ornate, rhythmically intricate, rather more diffuse than Taverner but with some pleasing motivic interplay nonetheless.
