Robert Fayrfax: Eterne laudis liliu


Eterne laudis lilium is almost certainly the anthem of our Lady and St Elisabeth for which Queen Elizabeth, the wife of Henry VII, paid Fayrfax 20 shillings on Easter Monday 1502; but this payment (and presumably the antiphons first performance) occurred at Richmond Palace, where the queen spent Easter that year, and not, as is widely supposed, at St Albans Abbey. The music shows Fayrfaxs customary eloquence, restraint and highly developed harmonic sense. This edition has been transposed down a minor third to suit a five-part mixed choir: SATBarB. x + 15 pages.
