Amner was organist and choirmaster at Ely Cathedral from 1610 until his death, and a fairly prolific composer of church music. Come, let’s rejoice comes from his only published collection, Sacred Hymnes of 3, 4, 5 and 6 parts (1615). With its appealing lightness of texture and dance-like rhythms, it resembles the madrigals of the time, and may in fact have been intended for home rather than church performance.
This album gathers together 23 examples of English sacred a cappella choral music drawn from several centuries, and forms a companion volume to Collegium’s earlier collection, Faire is the Heaven.» More
