Thomas Tallis (±1505-1585): Salvator Mundi – Hilliard Ensemble.

There are very many recordings of Tallis’ setting of Salvator Mundi the antiphon for Matins on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross but one that I come back to time and time again is this taut and elegantly sung performance by the Hilliard Ensemble. Enjoy :-).


Thomas Tallis (±1505-1585): Salvator Mundi – Hilliard Ensemble

Salvator mundi, salva nos,
qui per crucem et sanguinem
redemisti nos: auxiliare nobis,
te deprecamur, Deus noster.

O Saviour of the world, save us;
for you have redeemed us
through the cross and your blood: help us,
we beseech you, our Lord.
