Much of Tye's Latin music survives only incomplete, but he is known to have attempted a wide range of ambitious styles: cantus firmus compositions, freely imitative liturgical motets, and one elaborate mass in the English tradition entitled 'Euge Bone'. However, sixteen authenticated English services and anthems survive, all of which were written during the reign of Edward VI, when Tye was amongst the first composers to provide music for the newly-instituted Anglican Church. Blessed are all they that fear the Lord is a setting of Psalm 128 – the appointed psalm for the Marriage Service in the first two printings of the Book of Common Prayer – and is designated 'the marriage song' in the Chirk Castle manuscripts. Tye's setting, with its antiphonal implications, contains syllabic word-setting throughout which faithfully reflects the accentuation of the text, especially in the triple time section with which the anthem concludes.
