This well-known verse anthem has been arranged for four viols (not five as in the original), and in a key to suit viol players at A415, while the choir sings a semitone lower at A440. Score and parts are provided, but the score is only for use with the viols, as it does not represent the vocal parts fully.

Another lesser known, but very beautiful verse anthem. Same type of arrangement as for SPD 1.

This anthem was not originally for viols, and the viol parts have been arranged from the organ part. Same type of arrangement as SPD 1. The soprano parts are very high, and the treble viol parts go above the frets.

A long and very beautiful verse anthem which is not performed nearly often enough. It requires good solo voices, but the viol parts are not so difficult. Same type of arrangement as SPD 1.

 

This canzona is in 8 parts with a continuo line. It can be performed on tenor/bass viols or early brass. For this edition, the clefs are alto and bass, and it was edited from a facsimile. Score and parts.

 

A lovely solemn piece, not difficult, but eminently suited to a church situation as an interlude between verse anthems, for example. Top line in alto clef, with an alternative octave treble part included; fourth line is plainchant (all semibreves). Also good workshop material. Score and parts.
