Te Deum 'for trebles'  

Te Deum 'for trebles'

The Te Deum and Benedictus ‘for trebles’ by William Mundy are designed on a large scale, exploiting the use of high trebles, and Mundy cleverly employs choral groupings of various types to provide maximum contrast. The textures throughout are reminiscent of Sheppard’s best Latin compositions and by intensifying the contrapuntal activity in the closing sections of both canticles, Mundy takes the music to an even higher level. The treble part must have been included in the lost part-book and it has therefore been reconstructed by the present writer.
