WILLIAM MUNDY (1529 - 1591)
Father of John Mundy, William Mundy was a vicar-choral at St Paul’s Cathedral in London and in 1564 became a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, a position in which he was succeeded in 1591 by Anthony Anderson. Problems of distinguishing between the music of father and son are mentioned above.
William Mundy left settings of the Church of England Services, full anthems, verse anthems and Latin liturgical settings. This music is in a generally conservative style.
