Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Mihi autem nimis sets the antiphon of the Introit for the Feast of Apostles in a quiet, devotional way. Many of these pieces in the 1575 collection could well have been used in domestic settings as well as for the liturgy. Latin remained the usual language of law, diplomacy and education and would have been perfectly acceptable in an institution like the Chapel Royal or as part of a domestic ‘spiritual entertainment’.
