Reference: RCM110
Price (GBP): 4.00
Description: A contemporary of John Taverner, Hugh Aston was choirmaster at St Mary Newarke College, Leicester for over twenty years until the college was dissolved in 1548. In 1525 he was the first choice for the choirmaster’s post at Thomas Wolsey’s new foundation of Cardinal College, Oxford; on his refusal the position was offered to and accepted by Taverner. He was a gifted composer with a forthright and vigorous style and a particular fondness for imitative and motivic writing, both of which he handled with assurance and imagination. The melodic directness, verbal clarity and rhythmic energy of this, the shortest of his surviving votive antiphons, make it immediately appealing. Now in a second edition with a few minor changes to the editorial tenor part. For five voices: SATTB. vi + 14 pages. ISMN 979 0 57039 095 3.
