I would like to know what more "contemporary" Christians think of this extremely old piece! This is a FORTY PART motet, which means all it is is human voices singing. amazing, isn't it? It was written in about 1570 by the phenomenal and well known English Renaissance composer Thomas Tallis- all of his music is heavenly! This song is called "Spem in Alium" Here is the text:<br />

<br />

Latin:<br />

Spem in alium numquam habui praeter in te <br />

Deus Israel <br />

qui irasceris <br />

et propitius eris <br />

et omnia peccata hominum in tribulatione dimittis <br />

Domine Deus <br />

Creator coeli et terrae <br />

re%$$e humilitatem nostram <br />

<br />

English Translation:<br />

I have never put my hope in any other but in you, <br />

O God of Israel <br />

who can show both anger <br />

and graciousness, <br />

and who absolves all the sins of suffering man <br />

Lord God, <br />

Creator of Heaven and Earth <br />

be mindful of our humiliation
