Monteverdi: Laudate Pueri
The Green Mountain Project at the Church of St. Jean Baptiste in New York City, January, 2012

Praise the Lord, O children:
praise the name of the Lord.
May the name of the Lord be blessed,
from this time forth and for evermore.
From sunrise until sunset,
worthy of praise is the name of the Lord.
High above all nations is the Lord,
and his glory above the heavens.
Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwells on high
and beholds the humble in heaven and earth:
raising the helpless from the earth
and lifting from the dungheap the poor man,
to place him alongside princes,
with the princes of his people?
Who makes the barren women to keep house,
a joyful mother of children?

Glory be to the Father…
