HEAR THE VOICE AND PRAYER

Thomas Tallis

This beautiful motet, composed around 1547, is thought to be one of the earliest sacred pieces in English rather than Latin. Setting King Solomon's words at the dedication of the temple in Jerusalem, the plea for mercy and protection may have been particularly resonant for Henry VIII's newly-reformed church.

COME FLY WITH ME

James van Heusen (arr. Kevin Keller)

Here's hoping we're still this energetic after 1000 miles in the saddle and not ruing the bitter irony of 'Baby, let's fly!'
