Title: Salve Jesu mater vera RCM63 cover
Composer: Richard Davy
Editor: Nick Sandon
Reference: RCM63
Price (GBP): 5.00
Description: A resplendent setting, by one of the leading composers in the Eton choirbook, of a complex text which mingles praise of Mary with an imaginative and vivid evocation of her Son’s Passion. Davy’s career after he resigned his choirmastership at Magdalen College, Oxford at the beginning of the 1490s is something of a mystery. Perhaps because of his technical fluency he tends to be dismissed as a facile and superficial composer: an undeserved slight which is belied by his subtle craftsmanship, mastery of large-scale design and adventurous handling of harmony. One of Antico’s transposed editions of Eton choirbook music written at an unusually high or low pitch. For five voices: SATBarB. viii + 16 pages. ISMN 979-0-57039-171-4.
