Composer : William Byrd - Instrumentation : Choral SAB Style : Religious - Sacred Copyright : CPDL This famous canon at the fifth and unison or octave is now generally accepted by musicologists as not having been written by Byrd: Recent research has shown that the two related figures which form the basis of the 'Non nobis Domine' canon were extracted from the motet 'Aspice Domine' a5 by Philip van Wilder c.
In the motet both figures are set to the text-phrase 'Non est qui consoletur' 'there is none to console' which was presumably the text to which the original version of the canon was sung by the Elizabethan recusant community as an expression of nostalgia for the old religious order. The 'Non nobis Domine' text to which the canon is sung today was apparently taken from the first collect from the thanksgiving service added to the Book of Common Prayer to celebrate the thwarting of the Gunpowder Plot on 5 November The earliest source of the canon dates from to and is preserved in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, in the "Bull" manuscript, MS , f.
It is however clear from the repeated notes and the contour of the melody that this version was already designed to fit the 'Non nobis Domine' text, which was evidently sung in a spirit of thanksgiving for deliverance. The canon was published anonymously in three 17th century collections, yet the earliest attribution to a specific composer was made as late as by Thomas Tudway, who ascribed it to Morley; the woefully inaccurate Dr Pepusch ascribes it to Byrd in his Treatise on Harmony; and in the theme is quoted in a concerto by Count Unico Willem van Wassenaer formerly attributed to Pergolesi as Canone di Palestrina!

I have heard them but never seen them. Much appreciated! Was this review helpful? Heard on radio yesterday, and was delighted to find this SAB version so easily online and very clearly written and printed. Giving to our choir director in case he's like to use it for full choir one day.
I could not download this to my toenail and therefore am very angry. Thank you for nothing website! My toenail still hasn't seen the joy of music.

Non nobis Domine (Anonymous)
A celebrated Canon, generally sung, in England, as a substitute for 'Grace after meat,' at public dinners, and on other festive occasions. English historians are unanimous in describing 'Non nobis Domine' as the composition of William Byrd: but it is not to be found in any volume of his published works, though the subject appears in one of the 'Cantiones sacrse,' printed by Byrd and Tallis in Burney tells us that the earliest copy to which Byrd's name is appended is that inserted in Hilton's 'Catch that Catch can. Pepusch, in his ' Treatise on Harmony ' — , distinctly calls it 'the famous Canon by William Byrd,' and no doubt seems to have been felt on the subject until about the middle of the 18th century, when Carlo Ricciotti published, at Amsterdam, a Concerto, founded on the well-known theme, which he attributed to Palestrina. Palestrina has, indeed, used its opening clause more than once; notably in his Madrigal, 'When flowery meadows deck the year'—one of the loveliest that ever was written.
