This edition is a masterly realisation by Jason Smart from the only surviving source of this piece, the Batten Organ Book (Oxford, Bodleian Library, Tenbury MS 791). Scored for five voices (Treble, Mean, Contratenor, Tenor and Bass), the music is full of Sheppard’s characteristically bold gestures and harmony. A second Contratenor is added in the Gloria to each canticle.
SAT(T)BarB with verses for SSAATT/BB, ii+24 pp, 190 × 270 mm
