Heinrich Schütz: Musikalische Exequien (opening section)
The Marian Consort

Naked came I out of my mother‘s womb, naked shall I return. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord. Lord God, Father in heaven, have mercy upon us! Christ is my life and to die is gain. Look, this is the Lamb of God, which carries the sin of the world. Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon us!
