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.

Jean L’Héritier: Miserere mei
The Gesualdo Six

Heinrich Schütz: Selig sind die Toten

Selig sind die Toten,
die in dem Herren sterben,
von nun an.
Ja der Geist spricht:
Sie ruhen von ihrer Arbeit
und ihre Werke folgen ihnen nach.

Blessed are the departed,
that die in the Lord
from now on.
Yea, the Spirit speaks:
they rest from their labors
and their works follow them.

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

Alonso Lobo: Versa Est In Luctum
Caritas Consort

Versa est in luctum cithara mea,
et organum meum in vocem flentium.
Parce mihi Domine,
nihil enim sunt dies Mei.

My harp is turned to grieving
and my flute to the voice of those who weep.
Spare me, O Lord,
for my days are as nothing.
