Introduction
This is another of Tallis’s early anthems, composed during the reign of King Edward VI, probably for use by the Chapel Royal. In line with the demands of the Protestant reformers, the words are declaimed plainly and simply so that the listener can follow them. They come from the Old Testament book of Kings I.
