A contrafact of Byrd's "Exsurge Domine" published, in four parts, in The Cathedral Magazine (vol. 1), 1776. The omitted Medius/Alto has been added back (with editorial underlay). The vernacular version is perhaps the work of John Alcock.
Lyrics: Psalm 44, v.23, 24

Arise, O Lord, why sleepest thou: arise, and be not absent from us for ever.
O Wherefore hidest thou thy face: and forgettest our misery and trouble?
