Ave Maria, mater Dei

This lovely motet for men’s voices comes from the Eton Choirbook, one of the few music manuscripts to survive from the reign of King Henry VII. The piece is ascribed there to ‘Cornysh’, a name that could apply to any one of three musicians of that name. Widely thought to be by William Cornysh Junior, who died in 1523, this piece is more probably by his father, also William, who dies around 1502.
