Give almes of thy goods
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Give almes of thy goods is a pithy setting of an Offertory Sentence, which appeared in both the 1549 and 1552 Books of Common Prayer. This is an Edwardine creation in every way. Constructed in the ABB form of the early English anthem, this four-voice piece lasts for under two minutes and is entirely syllabic.
