Title: In manus tuas
Description: An anonymous setting of Psalm 31, v.6, known only from the 'Latter Set' of Caroline partbooks at Peterhouse, Cambridge. The composer, who may or may not have been the copyist, a minor composer called John Geeres, was clearly influenced by Tallis's setting of the same text.
