My church has hired an Episcopal music director. We are using a lot of music I have never heard before and sounds more and more Anglican as time goes on.
She had a choir sing a Thomas Tallis piece; who was an unreformed Catholic. He wrote a lot of English music in the time of reformation; though before that he wrote Latin pieces. He takes a lot of his words straight from the liturgy.
While it was nice to hear; it also sounded very Anglican, and left me sort of wondering if it is acceptable. Obviously our priest doesn’t have an issue with it. An article I read referred to Thomas Tallis as an Unreformed Roman Catholic? and I never heard of that before. Thanks
