This fantasy by William Mundy (c. 1529-1591) comes from British Library, Add. MS 37402-6, a collection of different kinds of music, including madrigals and motets, written in most cases without text. The present piece has no title, and we have to accept the possibility that it may have been a motet originally. It does, however, make quite an impressive instrumental piece. The composer's name is given just as "Munday", though one partbook has what appears to be a faint "W" before the name.
