James Deignan: Et Innocentum (from Hildegard von Bingen’s Rex noster pomptus est)
Luther College Nordic Choir; Andrew Last, Conductor

Our King stands ready
to accept the life-blood of the Innocents.
Let angels sing and sound praises
while the clouds grieve over that same blood.

However the Tyrant is suffocated
in heavy sleep by his own malice.

And the clouds grieve over that same blood.

Glory to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

As the clouds grieve over that same blood.
