Thomas Knyght was a lay vicar or professional singer at Salisbury Cathedral from the 1520s, became instructor of the choristers towards the end of the decade and organist about ten years later; he still held all these positions in 1543 but no longer did so by 1550. This Mass on a plainchant cantus firmus for Trinity is a very interesting mixture of old and new: chant quotation in the highest voice (for altos or means) is accompanied by fluent imitative and motivic counterpoint in the style of Taverner’s and Tye’s Mean Masses. Some of Knyght’s melodic mannerisms are also reminiscent of Taverner, but his spicy dissonance treatment seems all his own. For five voices: ATTBarB. viii + 40 pages. ISMN 979-0-57039-180-6.
