Robert Ramsey was Organist and Master of the Choristers at Trinity College, Cambridge, probably from about 1615 until his death in 1644. He was a distinctly individual composer who introduced into his music more Italianisms than most of his English contemporaries. These five-part settings of Almighty God, which hast given us thine only begotten Son, Almighty God, which through thine only begotten Son, We beseech thee, O Lord and Almighty God, which hast knit together thine elect (the Book of Common Prayer collects for Christmas, Easter, the Annunciation and All Saints) survive incomplete, and the editor has recomposed the missing voices (three out of five in one remarkable case). For five voices: MMCtTB. iv + 16 pages. ISMN 979-0-57039-169-1.
