John Nesbett was master of the Lady Chapel choir at Canterbury cathedral between about 1473 and 1487. Until 1540 the cathedral was a Benedictine monastery, and the Lady Chapel choir (consisting of about eight boys and a few musical monks) was its main polyphonic ensemble. This volume contains the two extant compositions ascribed to Nesbett: a five-part Magnificat which survives in the Carver and Eton choirbooks; and a three-part setting of the versicle Benedicamus domino (sung at the end of Vespers) preserved in a musical and pedagogic miscellany thought to have been used at the cathedral’s almonry school. One of Antico’s transposed editions of Eton choirbook music written at an unusually high or low pitch. For five and three voices: SATTB and ATT. viii + 11 pages. ISMN 979 0 57039 186 8.
