The long-lived William Child (1606/7–97) spent most of his adult career as organist of St George’s Chapel, Windsor; after the restoration of the monarchy in 1660 he also became an organist of the Chapel Royal. A prolific composer of Anglican services and anthems, he could evoke and illuminate a text but was also capable of jejune if not perfunctory work. The Latin Te Deum and Jubilate, for four-part choir divided into decani and cantoris, are in an outgoing ‘public’ style, while the little four-part anthem Bow down O Lord is more intimate, with some affective harmony. Missing vocal parts have been recomposed by the editor. v + 36 pages. MATB, unaccompanied. ISMN 979-0-57039-194-3.
