King Henry VIII Motets, 1516

A collection of motets by a 'Magister Sampson', formerly believed to be bishop of Chichester 1536 and of Coventry and Lichfield 1543-1554, but now thought to be a composer from the Netherlands, and by Benedictus de Opitiis, preceded by a hymn in honour of Henry VIII, with musical notation. The choirbook was produced in 1516 by Petrus de Opitiis of Antwerp for King Henry VIII.
