Mijn muziek (33)

Thomas Pykke (also spelt as Packe) (15th century) was an English composer. Clerk at Eton from 1454 to 1461. Represented in the Ritson MS notably by two Masses, Rex summeand Gaudete in Domino,two five-part settings, of the antiphon 'Lumen ad revalationem' and of the words 'Te Dominum confitemur' from the Te Deum and a Gaude sancta Magdalena. Packe is not an outstanding composer, but some of his two-part writing compares quite favorably with that in the Eton Choirbook.
