The ‘Edwarde’ to whom Terrenum sitiens is ascribed is probably Edward Hedley, a singer in the choir of Magdalen College, Oxford in the 1530s. His only known composition is exceptional both for its subject matter—the massacre of the Holy Innocents—and for its refrain form which relates it to the carol and responsory . Walter Erle’s outstandingly successful career as a courtier to Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary and Elizabeth (traced in some detail in the introduction to this edition) enabled him to found a dynasty of substantial landed gentry which survives to the present day. He was a specialist keyboard player but this votive antiphon in honour of one of the five wounds of Jesus is fluent and ambitious and shows an understanding of the vocal medium; it may have been sung by a small group of chamber singers rather than by a larger ecclesiastical choir. Now in a second edition with revisions to the editorial treble and tenor parts. SATTB. xvi + 28 pages.
