A Worcester man, Nathaniel Giles (or Gyles) held posts at St George’s, Windsor, and at the Chapel Royal until his death in 1633. His anthems were widely circulated during his lifetime, but largely forgotten thereafter. Their texts are taken from the Book of Common Prayer, the Bible and psalms, and from the metrical translations of Sternhold and Hopkins.
