Winchester Cathedral Choir, David Hill (conductor)
The Cambridge Singers, John Rutter (conductor)
This is a vivid and resplendent anthem for double choir (though with a single bass part, used to especially telling effect near the end); it could well have been written to grace a royal or other ceremonial occasion. The multiplicity of its printed and manuscript sources is indicative of its widespread popularity in the seventeenth century.
