William Byrd

Emendemus in melius
O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth
Sing joyfully unto God our strength
Great Service – Nunc dimittis
Vide, Domine, afflictionem nostram
Haec dies
Ne irascaris, Domine
Retire my soul
Ave verum corpus
Laudate Dominum omnes gentes
Optimam partem elegit
Factus est repente
Mass for Four Voices – Agnus Dei

Thomas Morley
Domine Dominus noster

Peter Philips
Ecce vicit Leo

Thomas Tomkins
Too much I once lamented

William Byrd
Laudibus in sanctis
