Tallis, Hear the Voice and Prayer
Untitled Lent Horizontal
Suitable for Lent, or also for General use, this is one of Tallis's earliest English anthems. It is usually sung as a four part anthem for Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass, but in the original the parts are clearly marked as Counter Tenor for Children, Mean for Children, Tenor for Men and Bass for Children. I have taken account of this in the present arrangement for Soprano, Soprano, Alto and Tenor. I have also transposed the anthem up a tone to bring it nearer to Tallis's original pitch.
