Not much is known about Thomas Causton apart from the fact that he sang in the choir, directed by John Taverner, at the opening of Wolsey's Cardinal College in Oxford in 1526, and that he was a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal who died on 28 October 1569. Causton's "In thee, O Lord, is all my Trust" is one of the earliest anthems written in English and derives its text from a hymn that was included with Sternhold & Hopkins Old Version. It is a translation of a hymn formerly believed to have been written by St. Augustine.
