Trinity motets

SATB (div.) unaccompanied

2016

A set of five simple unaccompanied motets for liturgical or concert use.

Four of the Trinity Motets (Mitte manum tuam, Vertetur in GaudiumO lux beata Trinitas and Ascendit Deus) have been recorded by Illuminare consort, conducted by Jeremy Cole, in St Mark's Church, Regents Park. These motets are designed to be sung by a good amateur choir but in this instance, they have been recorded by just four singers. 

Recordare, Jesu Pie

Motet for Lent

TEXT

Recordare, Jesu pie, quod sum causa tuae viae; ne me perdas illa die. Quaerens me, sedisti lassus, redemisti crucem passus; tantus labor non sit cassus. Ingemisco, tamquam reus: culpa rubet vultus meus; supplicanti parce, Deus.

TRANSLATION

Remember, kind Jesus, my salvation caused your suffering; do not forsake me on that day. Faint and weary you have sought me, redeemed me, suffering on the cross; may such great effort not be in vain. I sigh, like the guilty one: my face reddens in guilt: Spare the supplicating one, God.
