Fauré: Cantique de Jean Racine Op. 11
Cappella Amsterdam

(**Sorry about the noise before and after this! I wish the station wouldn’t do that as it’s very jarring!)

From the YouTube page:

This video was recorded in Bimhuis Amsterdam for VPRO Vrije Geluiden.
Vrije Geluiden is a music program made by the Dutch public broadcast organisation VPRO.

Word of God, one with the Most High,
in Whom alone we have our hope,
Eternal Day of heaven and earth,
We break the silence of the peaceful night;
Saviour Divine, cast your eyes upon us!

Pour on us the fire of your powerful grace,
That all hell may flee at the sound of your voice;
Banish the slumber of a weary soul,
That brings forgetfulness of your laws!

O Christ, look with favour upon your faithful people
Now gathered here to praise you;
Receive their hymns offered to your immortal glory;
May they go forth filled with your gifts.
