Thomas Tomkins

Thomas Tomkins' considerable output of church music comprises 62 full anthems, 56 verse anthems and 7 services as well as a handful of other smallscale pieces. Much of this was published in the monumental Musica Deo Sacra (1668), a collection which was almost certainly seen through the press by his son, Nathaniel. However the importance of the published church music should not be allowed to overshadow the other works - notably 8 full anthems (the majority being 'sacred madrigals'), 13 verse anthems and 2 verse services - since a number of these are worthy of inclusion in the standard repertoire.
