Volume 9 completes the collection of Byrd’s Latin sacred works from the late 1570s onwards preserved in manuscript alone. It includes Domine, exaudi orationem meam, which is published for the first time in fully reconstructed form. Philippe de Monte’s partial Psalm 136 setting, Super flumina Babylonis, to which Byrd’s Quomodo cantabimus (here appearing for the first time with text correctly underlaid) was a musical response, features in the appendices, together with the fragmentary Ad punctum in modico and a number of motets putatively ascribed to the composer, but judged unlikely to be by him.


Ad punctum in modico (fragment of a motet a 5) (BB)
Audivi vocem (SAATB)
Benigne fac (SATTB)
Circumspice Hierusalem (SSATBB)
Decantabat populus in Israel (Doubtful Work) (SATTB)
Deus, in adjutorium (SMzAATB)
Domine ante te (SSATTB)
Domine Deus omnipotens (SATTB)
Domine, exaudi orationem meam (SMzATB)
Peccavi super numerum (SATTB)
Quomodo cantabimis (SSAATTBB)
Reges Tharsis (Doubtful Work) (SATBaB)
Sacris solemniis (Doubtful Work) (SAATB)
Sanctus (Doubtful Work) (ATB)
Sponsus amat sponsam (Doubtful Work – fragment of a motet a 5) (ST)
Vide Domine quoniam tribulor (Doubtful Work) (SMzATB)
