The Lost Music of Canterbury (Boxed Set)

by Blue Heron

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A must-have for any serious collector of early choral music, this is a 5-CD set of the complete music from Blue Heron's groundbreaking, long-term Music from the Peterhouse Partbooks project (2010-2017). The package includes a new 84-page booklet with thousands of words on the works and history by Dr. Nick Sandon, as well as essays by Scott Metcalfe on performance practice, all illustrated with gorgeous color pictures. Complete texts and translations for the complete set are compiled in the single booklet, as well. The discs and booklet come housed in an attractive, early-to open box.

    The set includes mostly world premiere recordings and features masses by Nicholas Ludford, antiphons by Hugh Aston and Richard Pygott, the complete surviving works of Robert Jones, and the gifted though previously completely unknown composers Hugh Sturmy and Robert Hunt, and all but one of the surviving works of John Mason. The missing tenor parts have been supplied by Nick Sandon, who has dedicated much of his professional life to the Peterhouse partbooks, which were copied for Canterbury Cathedral in 1540 and are now named for the college currently housing them, Peterhouse Cambridge.

    Includes unlimited streaming of The Lost Music of Canterbury (Boxed Set) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Track Name: Ave Maria dive matris Anne
Ave Maria, dive matris Anne filia unica.
Ave Maria, que peperisti puerum virili sine semine.
Ave Maria, Jesum tuum filium lactasti sacro ubere.
Ave Maria, ipsum alluisti tua super genua.
Ave Maria, tres vidisti magos offerentes munera.
Ave Maria, Egyptum fugiens petisti angeli per monita.
Ave Maria, quesisti tuam sobolem magna cum mestitia.
Ave Maria, in templo reperisti docentem evangelia.
Conserva tuos famulos hec per tua merita,
et perduc eos ad celos cum celesti gloria,
psallentes et omnes hoc Ave Maria. Amen.

Hail, Mary, only daughter of the blessed mother Anne.
Hail, Mary, who brought forth a child without the seed of man.
Hail, Mary: you nourished Jesus your son at your sacred breast.
Hail, Mary: you washed him in your lap.
Hail, Mary: you saw three wise men bringing gifts.
Hail, Mary: fleeing, you set out for Egypt, through the angel’s warning.
Hail, Mary: you sought your child with great sorrow.
Hail, Mary: you found him in the temple teaching the Gospels.
Preserve your servants through these your merits,
and lead them to the heavens with celestial glory,
all singing this “Hail, Mary.” Amen.

Translation by Nick Sandon
Track Name: Magnificat
Magnificat anima mea dominum,
et exultavit spiritus meus in deo salutari meo.
Quia respexit humilitatem ancille sue:
ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes.
Quia fecit michi magna qui potens est,
et sanctum nomen ejus.
Et misericordia ejus a progenie in progenies
timentibus eum.
Fecit potentiam in brachio suo:
dispersit superbos mente cordis sui.
Deposuit potentes de sede
et exaltavit humiles.
Esurientes implevit bonis,
et divites dimisit inanes.
Suscepit Israel puerum suum,
recordatus misericordie sue.
Sicut locutus est ad patres nostros,
Abraham et semini ejus in secula.
Gloria patri et filio et spiritui sancto.
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper:
et in secula seculorum. Amen.

My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit has rejoiced in God my savior.
For he has regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden:
behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty has made me great,
and holy is his name.
And his mercy from generation to generation
is on them that fear him.
He has shown strength with his arm:
he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He has put down the mighty from their seat
and exalted the humble.
The hungry he has filled with good things,
and the rich he has sent empty away.
He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy.
As it was promised to our forefathers,
Abraham and his seed forever.
Glory be to the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and forever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
Track Name: Gaude virgo mater Christi
Gaude virgo mater Christi
que per aurem concepisti
Gabriele nuncio.
Gaude, quia Deo plena
peperisti sine pena
cum pudoris lilio.
Gaude, quia tui nati
quem dolebas mortem pati
fulget resurrectio.
Gaude Christo ascendente
et in celo te vidente
motu fertur proprio.
Gaude, quod post ipsum scandis
et est honor tibi grandis
in celi palatio,
Ubi fructus ventris tui
per te detur nobis frui
in perhenni gaudio.
O Maria virgo mater redemptoris nostri:
O Maria virgo nobilissima que jam regnas cum angelis,
coronata in gloria: ibi nostri memor esto.
O virgo sanctissima, funde preces tu pro nobis
ut possimus illic tuo sociari collegio. Amen.

Rejoice, O virgin mother of Christ,
who conceived through the ear
by the message of Gabriel.
Rejoice, for being filled with God
you brought forth without travail,
with the lily of chastity.
Rejoice, for there shines forth
the resurrection of your son,
whom you saw suffer death.
Rejoice, Christ having ascended,
and your having seen him in heaven,
moved, it is said, by his own will.
Rejoice, for after this you ascended,
and great honor is paid to you
in the palace of heaven,
Where the fruit of your womb
through you is given to us to enjoy
in everlasting felicity.
O Mary, virgin mother of our savior,
O Mary, most noble virgin who now reigns with the angels,
crowned in glory: be mindful of us there.
O most holy virgin, pour out your prayers for us,
so that we may be able to join your company in that place. Amen
Track Name: Quales sumus O miseri
Quales sumus, O miseri,
properantes ad portas inferi,
quatriduani fetentes,
ut te laudare presumamus,
O Maria, cum sciamus
non audiri delinquentes?

Sed in arcto constituti,
in labore lateris et luti,
insudantes gemiscimus.
Consolatricem miserorum
et refectricem laborum,
te deposcimus

ut oculos misericordes
ad nos convertas et sordes
peccatorum amoveas,
scelerumque soluto vecte,
Jesum sequentes recte
vermiculos ne despicias.

Israel celum non respicit,
nam terrena pulvis perficit;
hinc desperans confunditur.
Quare pro nobis deprecare
ad hunc qui lapides mutare
in Abraham filios dicitur

ut Israel oculos erigat
ad celum et deum sitiat
sicut cervus aquarum fontes,
ut, de Pharaonis imperio
erepti tandem durissimo,
mare transeamus insontes.

Et, licet hostes seviant,
hos maria non operiant,
[lacuna] O domina,
sed sevitiam removeant,
ut ereptos hos deleant
claustra tunc infernalia.

Et sic, virtutibus fecundi,
ad celestia mente mundi
properemus, O Maria,
ut post finem vite, jocundi
Christo juncti, letabundi
una cantemus alleluia.

What are we, O wretches,
hurrying to the gates of hell,
stinking within four days,
that we dare to praise you,
O Mary, since we know
that offenders are not fit to be heard?

But, closely confined,
toiling with bricks and clay,
sweating, we groan.
We beg you, the comforter
of the wretched
and refresher of labors,

That you will turn your merciful eyes
towards us and remove
the stains of sinners,
and not despise the worms
rightly following Jesus
when the bolt of sins has been shot.

Israel does not look towards heaven,
and (since dust is the fate of earthly things),
it is thrown into despair.
Intercede therefore for us
with him who is said to turn stones
into sons of Abraham,

So that Israel may raise her eyes
to heaven and thirst for God
“as the hart pants after the water-brooks,”
and so that we, snatched at last
from the most cruel tyranny of Pharaoh,
may cross the sea without harm.

And, although enemies rage,
let the seas not conceal them,
[lacuna] O Lady,
but wash away their fury,
so that then the confines of hell
may destroy these plunderers.

And thus, rich in virtue,
may we hasten to heaven
with a pure mind, O Mary,
so that after life’s end,
happily united with Christ,
as one we may sing “Alleluia.”

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father.

He was born of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and was made man. He was crucified for our sake under Pontius Pilate, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again, in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and
is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge both the living and the dead, and his kingdom shall have no end. Amen.

Hail,Mary:
HAIL was the first greeting
through which the wicked enemy was overcome; loathsome sin gnaws away [at us];
help us. Hail, Mary.
MARY: such art thou called
while thou art greeted by the angel; thy name puts demons
to flight. Hail, Mary.
GRACE of the Holy Spirit
made thee fruitful deep within; give us now the gifts
of graces. Hail, Mary.
FULL art thou with virtues
more than all the citizens of heaven; now bring virtue and support
[to us]. Hail, Mary.
THE LORD destined thee
for a son from the beginning; thou art a most fortunate mother and daughter. Hail, Mary.
WITH THEE angels rejoice
and archangels exult;
the courtiers of the heaven of heavens, O sweet one. Hail, Mary.
BLESSED wilt thou ever be on earth and on high; none is like to thee
in glory. Hail, Mary.
THOU ART crowned together with God
and thou dost acquire pardon for [thy] servants; obtain by thy prayers that pardon be granted
to us. Hail, Mary.
AMONG mankind prowl conflict,
worldly distraction, fleshly desires and demons; defend us, however, O dutiful one,
O merciful one. Hail, Mary.
WOMEN all thou dost surpass
in being filled with supreme influence; fill us with thy grace.
Hail, Mary. Hail, Mary.
AND [thou] remaining a virgin
after the birth just as before, and the son came down like dew
upon a fleece. Hail, Mary.
BLESSED BE [thy] son,
a propitious helper;
be thou a propitious helper to us. Hail, Mary.
THE FRUIT of thee loved so greatly that in thee he espoused us
so that he might wipe away the fault of [our] forefathers. Hail, Mary.
The cloister OF THE WOMB bare
Jesus who cleansed us of uncleanness;
may thou prevail upon him with a devout voice on our behalf. Hail, Mary.
May the mirror of the fertility OF THEE reflect light upon the world;
cleanse us of the disgrace
of sins. Hail, Mary.
JESUS the son, the savior:
may he lead us through on high where thou reignest in glory through [thy] merits. Hail, Mary.
AMEN is the end of the greeting;
opening [thy] mouth for those who have no voice, open the gates and joys of heaven
to us. Hail, Mary.

Track Name: Missa Spes nostra: Credo
Credo in unum deum, patrem omnipotentem, factorem celi et terre, visibilium omnium et invisibilium. Et in unum dominum Jesum Christum, filium dei unigenitum: et ex patre natum ante omnia secula. Deum de deo, lumen de lumine, deum verum de deo vero. Genitum non factum, consubstantialem patri: per quem omnia facta sunt. Et incarnatus est de spiritu sancto ex Maria virgine: et homo factus est. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis sub Pontio Pilato: passus et sepultus est. Et resurrexit tertia die secundum scripturas. Et ascendit in celum: sedet ad dexteram patris. Et iterum venturus est cum gloria judicare vivos et mortu- os: cujus regni non erit finis. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God. Begotten, not made; of one being with the Father, through whom all things are made. He was born of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and was made man. He was crucified for our sake under Pontius Pilate, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again, in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and
is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge both the living and the dead, and his kingdom shall have no end. Amen.

Track Name: Stabat mater
Stabat mater dolorosa Juxta crucem lacrimosa, Dum pendebat filius,
Cuius animam gementem, Contristantem et dolentem Pertransivit gladius.
O quam tristis et afflicta Fuit illa benedicta Mater unigeniti,
Que merebat et dolebat Dum videbat et gerebat Penas nati incliti.
Quis est homo qui non fleret Matrem Christi si videret
In tanto supplicio?
Quis non potest contristari Matrem Christi contemplari Dolentem cum filio?
Eya mater, fons amoris
Me sentire vim doloris Fac, ut tecum lugeam.
Fac ut ardeat cor meum
In amando Christum deum Ut illi complaceam.

The grieving mother
stood beside the doleful cross while her son hung there, and the sword went through her weeping soul,
sorrowing and lamenting.
Oh, how sad and afflicted
was that blessed mother
of the only-begotten,
who sorrowed and lamented while she saw and experienced the sufferings of her illustrious son.
Who is the man who would not weep
if he saw the mother of Christ
in such great anguish?
Who would not be moved to compassion if he beheld the mother of Christ grieving with her son?
Ah, mother, fount of love, make me feel the force of grief so that I may mourn with thee. Make my heart take fire
in loving Christ the God
that I may be pleasing to him.

Track Name: Ve nobis miseris
Ve nobis miseris, quia cum ad peccata commissa inspicimus et supplicia intelligimus que pro his pati debemus, non parvum timorem habemus.

Quid ergo? Remanebimus quasi desperati? sine consilio? sine adjutorio?

Non! Sed ad te, fontem pietatis et misericordie, Jesu Christe, currimus et festinamus, in quo jam tot et tantos peccatores absolutos vidimus et agnoscimus.

Obsecramus te igitur, domine deus noster, da nobis gratiam tuam, ut a vitiis et a morte anime resurgentes in virtutibus semper floreamus et in soliditate fidei ambulemus, ut que sursum sunt queramus et sapiamus, non que super terram.

Tibi gratias agimus, bone Jesu, pro inceptis in nobis gratie tue donis, que deprecamur ut misericorditer perficias nosque in viam salutis dirigas.

Per tue claritatis virtutem purga animas nostras a tenebris peccatorum, et per eandem virtutem in die universalis resurrectionis caro nostra resurgat ad gloriam, ut in futura resurrectione delicatam tuam invocationem gaudenter cum electis tuis audiamus te dicente, “Venite benedicti patris mei, percipite regnum quod vobis paratum est ab origine mundi.” Amen.

Woe to us wretches, for when we consider the sins that we have committed and understand the torments that we are doomed to suffer for them, we have no small fear.

What then? Shall we remain as if without hope? without counsel? without help?

No! On the contrary, we run and hasten to thee, O Jesus Christ, fount of love and mercy in which we have already seen and recognized so many and great sinners absolved.

We therefore pray thee, O Lord our God, grant us thy grace, so that rising from sins and death of the soul we may always abound in virtues and walk in firmness of faith, so that we may seek and be aware of the things that are above, not those on earth.

We give thee thanks, O good Jesus, for the gifts of thy grace begun in us, which we beg that thou wilt mercifully complete and guide us in the way of salvation.

Through the strength of thy brightness make our souls clean of the darkness of sins, and through the same strength let our flesh arise to glory on the dayt of the universal resurrection, so that in the resurrection to come we with thy chosen people may joyfully hear thy delectable invitation as thou sayest, “Come, ye blessed of my father, take possession of the kingdom that was prepared for you from the beginning of the world.” Amen.
