Details

During the religious upheavals of the 16th century the old Scottish repertory of polyphonic music was swept away and replaced by simple tunes that could be sung by congregations of the Reformed Kirk. This book focuses on the compositions of this type by former Benedictine monk Jhone Angus (c.1515–96), which are preserved in the delightful manuscript psalter of his friend Thomas Wode. The accompanying CD features recordings of the canticles set to music by Angus. Slightly off-mint.
