Better known as one of the more competent English madrigalists, George Kirbye has also left us a number of motets which show the same careful craftsmanship and responsiveness to words. The four-part Quare tristis/Convertere and six-part Vox in Rama both survive with missing voices which have been recomposed for this edition. Vox in Rama skilfully parodies Jacobus Clemens’ famous mid-sixteenth-century setting of the same text. For four and six mixed voices. iii + 16 pages. ISMN 979-0-57039-164-6.
