Tallis’ most famous work, most famously recorded by the Tallis Scholars:
The text (from ChoralWiki):
Spem in alium nunquam habui præter in te, Deus Israel:
qui irasceris et propitius eris,
et omnia peccata hominum in tribulatione dimittis.
Domine Deus, Creator cæli et terræ,
respice humilitatem nostram.
In English (my Englishing):
I have never placed my hope in another but you, God of Israel,
you who although you are angered even will be gracious,
and will put away all the sins of men in suffering.
Lord God, Creator of heaven and earth,
Look upon our lowliness.
From the Sarum use of the Roman Rite, based upon Judith 8:19 and 6:19.
