Mendelssohn: Verleih uns Frieden
Northwestern University Chorale; Donald Nally, conductor; Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra; Victor Yampolsky, conductor

December 8, 2013
Pick-Staiger Concert Hall at Northwestern University

Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich,
Herr Gott, zu unsern Zeiten;
Es ist doch ja kein andrer nicht,
Der für uns könnte streiten,
Denn du, unsr Gott, alleine.

Grant us peace graciously,
Lord God, in our time;
there is indeed no other
who could fight for us
than You, our God, alone.

Text: transl. Martin Luther (1483 – 1546)

Herbert Howells: Nunc dimittis
Bienen Contemporary/Early Vocal Ensemble; Donald Nally, conductor; Eric Budzynski, organ; James Reese, tenor

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church
Evanston, IL
October 26, 2014

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace:
according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
To be a light to lighten the gentiles:
and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be:
world without end. Amen.
