This substantial motet in four sections was written in the aftermath of the martyrdom of the Jesuit priest Edmund Campion, who was hanged, drawn and quartered at Tyburn in 1581. The text is entirely biblical but the parallels between the words of the Psalm and Campion’s fate are extraordinary – “They have given the dead bodies of thy servants to be meat unto the fowls of the air”.
