Taverner’s Mass Small Devotion shares material with his votive antiphon O Christe Jesu pastor bone. The antiphon’s original text was probably O Willelme pastor bone, and the Mass may originally have been entitled Sancti Willelmi devotio. The two works may have been written in the later 1520s as a pair honouring St William of York, as an indirect compliment to Taverner’s employer Thomas Wolsey, Archbishop of York. Now reprinted with some changes to the editorial voices, with a second copy of the antiphon underlaid with its original text, and with copies of all three pieces both at the original written pitch and transposed upwards by a tone. For five voices: SATBarB. viii + 80 pages. ISMN 979ÔÇæ0ÔÇæ57039ÔÇæ102ÔÇæ8.
