Title: Ad te clamamus (Salve regina)
Composer: Christopher Tye
Manuscript 1580 in Dow Partbooks, no. 14
Description: In the Sarum rite, a Marian antiphon could be sung as a separate evening devotion. This setting of part of the Salve Regina text may be a standalone composition, though it is more likely a surviving fragment of a complete polyphonic setting.
