Sancte Deus
EnglishFrançaisDeutschItaliano

Sancte Deus was an early work, a votive antiphon written in Henry VIII’s reign before the Reformation, and yet showing reformatory inclinations. Whereas votive antiphons were usually laudatory texts addressed to the Virgin Mary, Sancte Deus is a penitential text addressed to Jesus. The music, in four parts, is more succinct than Marian pieces used to be: a rare, Taverner-esque, blend of old and new.
