Out from the deep exists only in seventeenth-century sources and its attribution to Tallis cannot be secure. Two partbooks in Gloucester Cathedral record this metrical setting of Psalm 130 as being by William Parsons, but a complete source (the Chirk Partbooks) assign it to Tallis. In common with other Edwardine English-texted anthems it uses the form ABB and is completely syllabic, and it has the same gentle beauty that can be found in Tallis’ other works in English from this period.

Out from the deep existe seulement dans des sources du XVIIe siècle, où son attribution à Tallis n’est pas certaine; on pense à l’heure actuelle que ce serait l’œuvre de William Parsons. Comme d’autres hymnes sur des textes anglais de l’époque d’Édouard VI, il utilise la forme ABB, est entièrement syllabique et possède la même beauté douce que l’on peut trouver dans d’autres œuvres en anglais mises en musique par Tallis à cette époque.

Out of the deep existiert nur in Quellen des 17. Jahrhunderts, die keine zuverlässigen Angaben zu Tallis’ Urheberschaft liefern; heutzutage geht man davon aus, dass es aus der Feder von William Parsons stammt. Entsprechend anderen englischsprachigen Anthems der Zeit Eduards VI. Hat das Stück eine ABB-Anlage, ist völlig syllabisch gehalten und besitzt dieselbe zarte Schönheit wie die anderen englischen Werke Tallis’ aus jener Zeit.
