Miserere mihi Domine — William Byrd (1540-1623)

Hymn: Te lucis ante terminum — Thomas Tallis (1505-1585)

Deo Gratias — Byrd

Anthem: Drop, drop, slow tears— Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625)

Drop, drop, slow tears,
And bathe those beauteous feet
Which brought from Heaven
The news and Prince of Peace.

Cease not, wet eyes,
His mercy to entreat;
To cry for vengeance
Sin doth never cease.

In your deep floods
Drown all my faults and fears;
Nor let His eye
See sin, but through my tears.
