So, You Have a Cathedral Choir!
Suggested Uses(s)

SATB a cappella. Text from John 6:53-56. One of Tallis' great masterpieces!

A very effective and beautiful motet suitable as an introit or at communion and easily accessible by most SATB choirs.

Verily, verily I say unto you,
except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink his blood,
ye have no life in you.
Whoso eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath eternal life,
and I will raise him up at the last day.
For my flesh is meat indeed,
and my blood is drink indeed.
He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood dwelleth in me,
and I in him.
