“All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night,” HymnStudiesBlog, March 8, 2008 https://hymnstudiesblog.wordpress.com/2008/03/08/quotall-praise-to-thee-my-god-this-nightquot/

Tallis died at Greenwich, England, on Nov. 23, 1585 (some sources give the date of 1588). Tallis’s canon was originally in eight phrases, and the four-phrase form first appeared in The Whole Book of Psalms, published in London, England, in 1621 by Thomas Ravenscroft (c. 1592-c. 1635). It was first used with Ken’s text in the Harmonious Companion of 1712 (one source says 1732) by Smith and Prellieur. Some of our books use a more melodic arrangement known as Tallis’ Evening Hymn, probably taken from George Whitefield’s Divine Musical Miscellany of 1754.
