If Ye Love Me – Thomas Tallis

In this video, we feature the beautiful song "If Ye Love Me" by the Renaissance composer Thomas Tallis. This English composer and organist is widely known as the "father" of English cathedral music. He composed a great variety of sacred and secular vocal music, including hymns, motets, masses and songs.

This tune is an "a cappella" vocal piece with a gentle harmony, which conveys a sense of peace and tranquillity. The lyrics are based on a biblical passage from the Gospel of St John, where Jesus says: "If you love me, keep my commandments". The interpretation is performed by the Heralds of the Gospel, who bring to life the beauty and simplicity of this classic song. If you are a classical music lover or simply enjoy soft, relaxing music, this video is for just you. Enjoy this song and let yourself be carried away by its timeless beauty.

Here are the full lyrics to the song "If Ye Love Me" by Thomas Tallis:

If ye love me, keep my commandments.
And I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another comforter,
that he may ‘bide with you forever;
E’en the sp’rit of truth.
— John 14:15–17
