The Latin church music of Robert Parsons, Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, dates from the reigns of Mary and of her half-sister, Elizabeth who, although she insisted on her chapel services being in English, allowed the use of Latin for introits, anthems, and other peripheral choral music. Parsons, like William Byrd a Roman Catholic, showed the influence of the psalm motet and votive antiphon in his work.

Ave Maria
Credo quod redemptor meus vivit
Domine quis habitabit
Iam Christus astra ascenderat
Libera me Domine de morte eterna
O bone Iesu
Peccantem me quotidie
Retribue servo tuo
