Early English Church Music (EECM) is published by Stainer & Bell on behalf of the British Academy. The aim of the series is to make available sacred music by English composers from the earliest times to the middle of the seventeenth century, in accordance with the highest scholarly standards. The first volume of the series, founded in 1961, was published in 1963, and in the following half-century its pre-eminence as a source of repertoire was confirmed through publication of major works by Dering, Gibbons, Sheppard, Tallis, Taverner, Tomkins, Tye, White and others.
Though best known for his Dorian Service, Tallis also set the Preces and Responses, the Litany, and various psalms for service use, as well as providing the so-called 'tunes' for Archbishop Parker's Psalter. In addition to this important corpus of music, this volume gathers together those fragments by Tallis for which a single part only is extant.
Includes an introduction, commentary and notes on performance by the editor.
