||A contemporary of John Taverner, Hugh Aston refused the choirmaster’s post at Cardinal College, Oxford before it was offered to Taverner himself. The Marian antiphon Ave Maria ancilla trinitatis is one of the most ambitious and impressive of his surviving works. Written on a large scale, it is extremely florid and colourful, exploiting a wide range of rhetorical devices and culminating in an exciting ‘Amen’ section. For five voices: SATT/BarB. vi + 18 pages.
