James Macmillian: Domine non secundum peccata nostra
VOCES8 and Rachel Podger

TEXT
Domine, non secundum peccata nostra, quae fecimus nos: neque secundum iniquitates nostras retribuas nobis. Domine, ne memineris iniquitatum nostrarum antiquarum: cito anticipent nos misericordiae tuae, quia pauperes facti sumus nimis.
Adjuva nos, Deus salutaris noster: et propter gloria nominis tui, Domine, libera nos: et propitius esto peccatis nostris, propter nomen tuum.

TRANSLATION
O Lord, repay us not according to the sins we have committed, nor according to our iniquities. O Lord, remember not out former iniquities: let Thy mercies speedily prevent us, for we are become exceeding poor.
Help us, O God, our Saviour: and the glory of Thy Name,
O Lord, deliver us: and forgive our sins for Thy Name’s sake.

Bruckner: Os Justi
Bach Collegium San Diego; Ruben Valenzuela, Artistic Director

The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
and his tongue speaks what is just.
The law of his God is in his heart:
and his feet do not falter.
Alleluia.
I have found David, my servant;
I have anointed him with my holy oil.
Alleluia

(I heard from three people who say they listen. You know what they say about “three or more”? Well, I guess I’ll apply that to posting the Sunday music, too.)

Purcell: Hear My Prayer, O Lord
Ensemble ZENE; Bruno Kele-Baujard, Director

(Side note: Those on Facebook and Google+ will see this because both this and my photo site are set to automatically share posts on those. I’m finding social media was bashing my heart just a wee bit too much, and I needed a break.)

So no oboe on this one, but I thought it was quite beautiful, and wanted to share it to bring it to clarinetists’ attention. I wish one could see the performers doing what they do, but the group only shared the image of their recording.
