(After tonight I’m taking a bit of a break … oboeinsight is probably not long for the world. I’ll give myself some time to think about it, though, before I actually pull the plug!)

Begin, My Soul, the Exalted Lay: arr. Alice Parker & Robert Shaw
Oasis Chorale

Viadana: Exsultate just
The Gesualdo Six; Owain Park, Director

Exsultate justi in Domino; rectos decet collaudatio.
Confitemini Domino in cithara; in psalterio decem chordarum psallite illi.
Cantate ei canticum novum; bene psallite ei in vociferatione.

Rejoice in the Lord, O ye just; praise befits the upright.
Give praise to the Lord on the harp; sing to him with the psaltery, the instrument of ten strings.
Sing to him a new canticle, sing well unto him with a loud noise.

Vivaldi: Cum demerit from Nice Dominus
Sara Mingardo, Contralto; Silvia Colli, Gian Andrea Guerra, Violin; Valentina Soncini, Viola; Gioele Gusberti, Cello; Vanni Moretto, Contrabass

Cum dederit dilectis suis somnum
Cum dederit dilectis suis somnum;
Ecce haereditas Domini, filii:
Merces, fructus ventris

When he has given sleep
To those he loves
Behold, children are an inheritance
Of the Lord
A reward, the fruit of the womb

Psalm 127 (Verses 2 – 3)

Monteverdi: Beatus vir
Collegium 1704; Vaclav Luks, Conductor

Blessed is the man who fears the lord:
He delights greatly in his commandments.
His seed will be mightly on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in his house;
And his righteousness endures for ever and ever.
Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness:
He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
Good is the man who is full of compassion and lends.
He will guide his affairs with discretion:
Because he will not be moved for ever.
The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance.
He will not be afraid of evil tidings.
His heart is fixed, trusting in the lord;
His heart is established:
He will not be moved,
Until he gazes at his enemies.
He has dispersed, he has given to the poor:
His righteousness endures for ever and ever,
The strength of his soul will be exalted with honour.
The sinner will see it, and will be grieved;
He will gnash with his teeth, and melt away.

Terry Talbot: Create In Me
