This is Tallis' famous motet If Ye Love Me as a duet and a solo. There is no fingering as though it is my arrangement and not an original lute setting you might prefer the 3=F# tuning for this piece. Of course the guitar layout is just as authentically Elizabethan or Jacobean because the bandora stringing has the 3rd in the guitar position so bandora parts have the feel of modern guitar tuning...........

Thanks for this - I used to sing it as a choirboy; it'll take me back :)
