Comments: Information from CD. This is a rather strange release with a stated recording date (may 1954), a period where Deller recorded:
Vanguard "The Bach Guild" BG-539 Elizabethan and Jacobean Music
Vanguard "The Bach Guild" BG-547 Music of Purcell, Jenkins, and Locke
Vanguard "The Bach Guild" BG-550 Johann Sebastian Bach Cantatas No 54 / 170 and Mass in B Minor (Agnus Dei)
It could be possibly supplementary material not initially used.
