    Default Thomas Tallis: Hear The Voice And Prayer (c. 1560)

    We don't very often live up to the "Medieval, Renaissance" part of this sub-forum, so here is a polyphonic tudor composition.

    Thomas Tallis (1505-1585): "Hear The Song And Prayer"

    This is a vocal chorus in four parts, written by the Tudor court composer Thomas Tallis and published some time prior to 1560.

    My instrumental setting for mandolin quartet is based on the CPDL setting by B. Marble, but transposed to G minor:

    Using my newly repatriated Vinaccia mandolin -- it was out on loan for a few years and I had forgotten how wonderful it sounds and plays!

    1898 Giuseppe Vinaccia mandolin (x2)
    Mid-Missouri M-111 octave mandolin
    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello

    I pass the Thomas Tallis Alehouse several times a week. It's a nice surprise to see it in your video!
