Title: Litany

Composer: Thomas Tallis

Date of request: 2003-02-10

Requested by: Wesley Weed

Additional notes: I'm referring to Tallis' setting of the Litany from the Book of Common Prayer ('O God the Father of heaven,' etc.). This should be a short score, since Tallis only set the responses (most of the text is monotoned by a cantor). This has often been adapted to 4 voices but I'd like to see Tallis' 5-voice original. A score in a format other than Pdf that could be easily adapted to the American Prayer Book would help.
