JOHN MUNDY (1555 - 1630)
John Mundy, son of the composer William Mundy, spent much of his life as organist at St George’s Chapel, Windsor. It is not always possible to distinguish between his work and that of his father, when the ascription is given only as Mundy.
John Mundy wrote English and Latin church music, the former including verse anthems and full anthems. Notable among his Latin church music is his setting of the Lamentations and his In te Domine speravi.
Among the instrumental music by John Mundy are a few virginal pieces included in the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book, the collection compiled by Francis Tregian during his 10 years of imprisonment in the London Fleet prison, condemned as a Catholic recusant.
