Two Versions - You know it! You love it! BOTH SATB Choir and an SAB arrangement for smaller forces. This is a classic! Use anytime of year.
The musical source for this well-known piece is Tye’s 1553 publication The Actes of the Apostles, a rendering of that New Testament book in metrical verse together with a musical setting for each chapter. The music for ‘Laudate nomen’ is the setting for Chapter 4 in Tye’s version; however, the Latin text with which the music is now generally associated is a later anonymous contrafactum, or substitute text, being a paraphrase of the first verse of Psalm 112; an English translation of this, beginning ‘O come, ye servants of the Lord’, is also frequently encountered.
The recording is of the SAB version. If you would like the SATB recording (original) it is in the EXTRAS (ZIP) file.
