This large-scale Marian antiphon is one of Mundy’s finest works and was written during the brief reign of Mary I (1553-1558) when Roman Catholicism was restored to England. It was previously thought that the piece was written for the Feast of the Assumption at St-Mary-at-Hill in London during the late 1550s. However, John Milsom suggests that it was actually composed in celebration of the accession of Mary I (the final words are “Come and be crowned with heavenly glory”). Musically, the piece is divided into three grand sections which culminate in monumental tuttis. Unusually, it also features a triple gimel in the final section, with the Triplex, Medius and Bassus all divided into equal voices.
