Thomas Knyght was a vicar-choral and later also organist and choirmaster at Salisbury Cathedral from the mid-1520s to the later 1540s. This volume includes all the four-part church music bearing his name: a votive antiphon Sancta Maria virgo, the processional antiphon Christus resurgens for Easter Sunday, a setting of the Lady-Mass Alleluia Obtine sacris precibus, and an English Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis; also included are an anonymous setting of the Nunc dimittis associated with his Magnificat in one source, and a poem ascribed to 'Master Knyght'. The Latin settings are similar to his five-part Mass Libera nos (already published by Antico Edition as RCM140) in their pre-Reformation style: based on plainchant cantus firmi, ornate and melismatic, rhythmically vigorous and contrapuntally resourceful, with a taste for quite spicy dissonance. The English settings are simpler in style, reflecting the musical taste of the early Anglican church, but far from bland. He was clearly a considerable composer. For four voices, small choir or soloists: SATB (Alleluia Obtine), ATBarB (Sancta Maria), TTBarB (Christus resurgens, Magnificat and Nunc dimittis). x + 24 pages.
