William Mundy (c.1528-1591)

 

William Mundy was a chorister at Westminster Abbey and later became a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal. He composed music in both English and Latin and large-scale works in a variety of genres have survived, such as his Evening Service In medio chori and Vox Patris caelestis, arguably his finest work. Whilst we do not know a great deal about his life, he was held in high regard by his contemporaries and the scribe Robert Dow even compared him to William Byrd in verse:

Moon day:
As the light of the moon follows close on the sun
So you after Byrd, Mundy, next do come.
