  • In monte Olivetti
  • O vos omnes
  • How are the mighty fall’n

Thomas Tallis: Tunes for Archbishop Parker’s Psalter
1) The first is meek: devout to see.
Man blest no doubt
2) The second is sad: in majesty.
Let God arise in majesty
3) The third doth rage: and roughly brayeth.
Why fum’th in fight
4) The fourth doth fawn: and flattery playeth.
O come in one to praise the Lord

Robert Carver: Credo from Missa ‘Dum sacrum mysterium’ (a 21)

Thomas Tallis: Tunes for Archbishop Parker’s Psalter
1) The fifth delighteth: and laugheth the more.
E’en like the hunted hind
2) The sixth bewaileth: it weepeth full sore.
Expend, O Lord, my plaint of word
3) The seventh treadeth stout: in froward race.
Why brag’st in malice high
4) The eighth goeth mild: in modest pace.
God grant we grace
‘Tallis’ Ordinal’ – Come Holy Ghost

Thomas Tallis: Spem in alium (a 40)
