William Mundy is a relatively obscure figure in the generation between Tallis and Byrd. However, this recording presents many interesting features: pieces in the contemporary style of Byrd's Cantiones Sacrae, elaborate pieces in the older style of Taverner, and a few short verse anthems heralding Gibbons. The organ appears on two tracks.
