Lord, for thy tender mercy's sake

Christian Prayers and Holy Meditations, 1568

There is some doubt whether this favourite little piece was written by Farrant or by another minor Elizabethan composer, John Hilton (d1608). Like Farrant, Hilton was a cathedral musician who had an interest in the theatre, producing ‘boy plays’ enacted by young choristers.
