Description

Details

Robert Hunt may have been a chorister at Magdalen College, Oxford between 1486 and 1493; a namesake was chaplain of a chantry at Chichester cathedral in 1535, and since church singers who were priests sometimes held such chaplaincies to supplement their main salary, this may have been the same man. The familiar Marian antiphon Stabat mater is well represented in the Eton choirbook, but Hunt’s setting is one of the very few to be found in later English sources. It is a striking and moving piece, one of the gems of the Peterhouse repertoire: eloquent and yet reticent, and very reminiscent of the later music of Fayrfax. For five voices: SATTB. vii + 20 pages. ISMN 979-0-57039-166-0.
