Description

Saint Osmund (d. 1099) was the last English saint to be canonized (in 1456) before the reformation. In 1457 a great celebration was held at Salisbury Cathedral as his remains were translated into a new shrine. The music composed for the Translation of Saint Osmund, which survives in only a single manuscript, thus represents the final flowering of chant-composition in England. This performance will be the first since the reformation of all the surviving Sarum chant composed in honour of Saint Osmund.
