About

Volume 2 of Music from the Peterhouse Partbooks contains world premiere recordings of major works by Nicholas Ludford (c.1490-1557) and Richard Pygott (c.1485-1549).

Ludford’s radiant Missa Regnum mundi is presented in a musical context like that of its probable original occasion, a festal mass for St Margaret, with plainchant items from the Proper according to the Use of Salisbury.

The disc concludes with Pygott’s extraordinary Salve regina, one of the longest votive antiphons extant and a marvel of rhetorical expression.
