Composed by William Byrd, a two-volume cycle of 109 polyphonic Latin mass propers for major feasts, possibly for the household of Sir John Petrie, leader of an outlawed Roman Catholic community in Essex, England. Book I was published in 1605, but anti-Catholic reaction to the Gunpowder Plot forced its withdrawal. Book II was published in 1607, and both volumes were reprinted in 1610.
