A vicar-choral at Wells Cathedral for nearly half a century, and also choirmaster and organist for much of that time, Richard Hygons is one of the older composers represented in the Eton choirbook. This fluent and lively setting of what appears to have been a favourite Marian devotional text with English fifteenth-century composers is based on the ‘caput’ melisma from the antiphon Venit ad Petrum sung at the Maundy ceremony on the Thursday of Holy Week. The same cantus firmus also forms the foundation of a mid-century English cyclic Mass formerly attributed to Dufay, and two other Masses by Ockeghem and Obrecht: Hygons’ exploitation of it strengthens the case for the English genesis of the “caput” group of compositions. One of Antico’s transposed editions of Eton choirbook music written at an unusually high or low pitch. For five voices: SATTB. vi + 14 pages. ISMN 979Ã”Ã‡Ã¦0Ã”Ã‡Ã¦57039Ã”Ã‡Ã¦188Ã”Ã‡Ã¦2.
