Complementary to Giles’s anthems in volume 23, but also marking a new stage in the reception of his music, this collection of the composer’s surviving services corrects the dearth of critical editions that has inhibited performances of his works in recent years. A more considered view of the output in the light of his contemporaries Byrd, Morley, Tomkins and Weelkes is also now possible. While the First Service survives largely intact, the Second is incomplete but has, without re-composition, been reconstructed from surviving organ parts and other sources. The fragmentary Short Service was most likely canonic, reflecting Giles’s reputation as a ‘learned’ composer and educator.

Editorial guidance is offered as to a possible reconstruction of the Te Deum, Jubilate and Creed. Joseph Sargent has provided an extensive revision of Giles’s biography, with full transcripts of previously unpublished court documents.
