Programme Note
Lennox Berkeley Three Latin Motets (1972)
These Three Latin Motets were written in 1972 by Sir Lennox Berkeley for the Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, who gave their premiere in the same year, under their conductor, George Guest. Since the first performance the same choir and many others have performed the same choir and many others have performed these beautiful motets which are for five-part choir.

The first is a setting of a text for Passion Sunday, Eripe me (Deliver me, O Lord); the second, Veni Sponsa (Come thou Bridge of Christ) is to a text proper to the Feast of Virgins and Martyrs and the third is a Maryan anthem, Regina Coell (Queen of Heaven), proper to/season from Easter Sunday to the Friday before Pentecost.
