Dum transisset sabbatum by Thomas Tallis

10/10/2012

The life of Thomas Tallis (c. 1505-1585) coincided with the introduction of the Reformation in England. While under Edward VI severe restrictions had applied to the ornamenation of sacred music, Elizabeth I’s ascent to the throne ushered in a period of tolerance, authorizing the use of Latin in the reformed liturgy. This was the context in which Tallis, who, despite being Catholic, was well looked upon in English music life, composed his five-part Easter responsory Dum transisset sabbatum.
