Composed by John Sheppard (c1515 - c1559)

Sheppard was Informator Choristorum of Magdalen College, Oxford in the 1540s. In the college statutes, Magdalen's founder, William Waynflete, ordained that college members should recite the antiphon to the Trinity each morning and night, and Sheppard's pair of settings of Libera nos, salva nos appear to have been written for this purpose
