Edition notes: This is really a bit naughty, but as Tallis wasn't above using a different text for the same piece, neither am I! This takes the music of Tallis' O nata lux and text of O salutaris hostia. A short and rather disgustingly full of English cadences "Amen" does not take much imagination to write, so I've left it without one.
