The Second Service 'in F fa ut' comprises five movements – Venite, Te Deum laudamus, and Benedictus alongside the present evening canticles – with the opening bars of certain movements sharing musical material. It demonstrates a distinct feeling of post-modal tonality throughout, including transitory 'modulations', whilst imitative counterpoint and antiphony are among its other notable features undoubtedly developed from the practices of continental Europe. Like his contemporaries John Sheppard and Robert Parsons, and despite the Catholic allegiance of all three composers, Mundy drew upon this new style to forge an expansive approach to Anglican service writing for the Chapel Royal that runs contrary to the often-held perception that services and anthems at this time, even those written for the Chapel, conformed to an essentially functional note-against-note dictum. Sheppard, however, as the senior composer of the three and the only one writing such services during the Edwardian period (1547- 53), can be regarded as the father of the genre.
