First Sunday in Lent until Passion Sunday: Respond at Sunday Compline

 
From 1543 Sheppard was choirmaster at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he wrote an impressive body of mainly Latin church music. This simple, restrained setting of a Compline text would have been intended for Sheppard’s own choir, its top part probably sung by adult altos, the choristers presumably being in bed.
