In the church Wolfe, who died at Quebec (1759), and Tallis, the musician, are buried.
By composing these settings for Compline, Tallis made up for the loss of the splendid votive antiphons.
The two early votive antiphons Ave Dei and Ave Rosa open the disk and it concludes with one of Tallis's masterpieces Salve Intemerata.
Tallis always sets the first polyphonic verse or pair of verses in compound duple meter and the others in simple duple meter and the others in simple duple.
