  1. This will hopefully cause a few shivers down a few spines. A huge undertaking, they got 700 people together to sing it.

    If you like it, I recommend practically anything by Tallis because it's all extremely yummy.

  2. That was very nice! Thanks for sharing! (y)
  3. You're welcome. If the longer piece above is taxing on anyone's patience, here another Tallis which is equally beautiful and just over two minutes.

    If ye love me, keep my commandments, and I will pray the Father,and he shall give you another comforter, that he may bide with you for ever, ev’n the spirit of truth.

    Words: John 14: 15-17 / Music: Thomas Tallis
