Français: Hypérion

O salutaris hostia ist eine Vertonung eines Texts, der während der Benediktion verwendet wird, und sie hat eine vorreformatorische Besetzung von SATBarB. Aufgrund des Stils ist das Stück jedoch eindeutig während der Herrschaft entweder von Maria oder Elisabeth I. anzusiedeln und es ist in mehreren gedruckten Quellen überliefert.
