Title: Gaude flore virginali RCM37 cover
Composer: Anonymous (Lambeth choirbook)
Editor: Nick Sandon
Reference: RCM37
Price (GBP): 5.50
Description: One of a series of ten editions (RCM31–40) publishing the antiphons and anonymous Magnificats in the Lambeth choirbook. Traditionally attributed to St Thomas Becket, the Marian antiphon Gaude flore virginali was relatively popular with English composers in the later fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, and its disappearance may have been connected with Henry VIII’s politically-motivated detestation of the saint. The opening section of this attractive setting may incorporate elements of a melody to which the text was sung monophonically. For five voices: SATTB. viii + 18 pages. ISMN 979-0-57039-136-3.
