Peerson, Martin: Complete Works 5: Sacred Songs (Richard Rastall) AB07
£24.00

Availability: More than 50 in stock!

Volume V contains Peerson’s most extensive pieces as well as some of the miniature gems for which he has long been known. The principal contents are the 21 domestic consort-songs, presumably to be performed with viols, that set psalms and other biblical and devotional texts but also include an extended poetic meditation on the Passion and a lament for James I’s cousin Lady Arbella Stuart. Among the full-style songs are the miniature gems that long ago earned Peerson a reputation as an important and individual voice of the early Stuart period. Also included is Peerson’s surviving liturgical music with organ accompaniment: three verse-anthems and one full anthem. As Master of the Children at St Paul’s cathedral, he must have composed more church music than this, mainly lost when the cathedral was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. These small remnants survived because they were copied for use in Durham cathedral. Like most of the sacred songs, they are published here for the first time.
