Preces & Responses
Miniature unaccompanied masterpieces that give the liturgical form to evensong and mattins. We don't currently have a listing for possibly the greatest of the responses, William Smith of Durham - Ayleward is a good, simple starter. If you want the Smith it's in a booklet called Tudor Responses in RSCM Music Direct.
