William Byrd (c1540 - 1623): Prevent us, O Lord, anthem a 5 voci (pubblicato in Dow Partbooks, 1580, n. 58). The Tallis Scholars, dir. Peter Phillips.
Prevent us, O Lord, in all our doings with thy most gracious favour,
and further us with thy continual help;
that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in thee,
we may glorify thy holy Name.
And finally by thy mercy, obtain everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
