English Anthem Frenzy

In the last several days, a certain frenzy seems to be developing for the English Anthem as a good transitional measure in parishes where all Latin, all the time, is not possible (yet). So in keeping with the fashion, I thought I should list some of our favorites:

  • If Ye Love Me, by Thomas Tallis (PDF) (Midi)
  • O Lord, Increase My Faith, by Henry Loosemore (mis-attributed to Gibbons) (PDF) (Midi)
  • Hear My Prayer, O Lord, by Henry Purcell (PDF) (Midi)
  • Lord, For Thy Tender Mercy's Sake, by Richard Farrant (PDF) (Midi)
  • O Lord Give They Holy Spirit, by Thomas Tallis (PDF) (Midi)
  • Prevent Us, Lord, by C.H.H. Parry (PDF) (Midi)
