Richard Dering’s Cantica Sacra is a collection of sacred part-songs which was originally published by Playford in London in 1662.  These four part books were a gift from Charles Deering.  Selected pieces from the Cantica Sacra were edited by University of Miami alumna Susan Potter and published by Theodore Presser in 1979.

The Special Collections department of Richter library holds an original 1662 copy of the Cantica Sacra.
