Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Audivi vocem is one of Tallis's most purely beautiful compositions. A setting of the respond at the service of Matins on All Saints’ Day, it makes use of Sarum Rite chant, which means it must have been written before 1559 when this rite was finally abandoned. The style of the music, however, suggests a date rather earlier than Mary’s reign, with its avoidance of imitation and uninflectedly modal harmonies.
