Title: Magnificat 'Regale'
Composer: Robert Fayrfax
Manuscript c.1520 in Eton Choirbook, no. 75
Description: Unlike the Missa Regali which employs the antiphon Regali ex progenie, the title of Fayrfax's "Regaly Magnificat" is a mystery: possibly it was associated with the Collegium Regale of King's College.
