The Lambeth Choirbook is an illuminated choirbook dating from the early Tudor period (ca. 1490-1530). This book is also sometimes referred to as the Arundel Choirbook. Edward Hygons is thought to be responsible for the production of this choirbook, as well as the Eton Choirbook and Caius Choirbook. The same scribe is believed to have copied this book as the Caius Choirbook.


The choirbook consists of 19 pieces: seven masses, four Magnificat settings and eight motets.

  • Robert Fayrfax (at least 8 works, though only 3 attach his name in this edition but the works are attributed to him in other sources such as the Caius Choirbook)
    • O Quam Glorifica
  • Nicholas Ludford (at least 2 works)
  • seven anonymous works:
    • Ave Dei Patris filia
    • Ave mundi spes Maria
    • Gaude flore virginali
    • Salve regina
    • two Magnificats
    • Vidi aquam egredientem de templo (antiphon at the Aspersion before Mass during Eastertide).
  • Walter Lambe (1 piece, has a concordance in the Eton Choirbook)
  • Edmund Sturton
