Hosanna to the Son of David

author of text
Matthew 21: 9 & Luke 19, adapted

Thomas Weelkes’ glorious full anthem Hosanna to the Son of David is based on a paraphrase of verses from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. Weelkes gained a reputation for drunkenness and was eventually dismissed from his position of organist at Chichester Cathedral. His final book of madrigals has on its title page “Gentleman of the Chapel Royal”, though as no records exist it seems that he was at best a Gentleman Extraordinary—i. e. unpaid supernumerary.
