Laudes Regiae was sung in the Norman Abbey of Fécamp when royalty entered for worship. A manuscript was brought by Osmund to Old Sarum which was discovered on the flyleaf of an eleventh-century manuscript in Salisbury Cathedral Library. The version sung here is based on a modern edition and some of the text has been adapted for use in Advent. The music, edited by Christopher Dearnley, was written before the Norman Conquest and provides a dramatic and declamatory opening to this recording.
