Music for Lent: Arvo Part, De Profundis



Arvo Pärt
Paul Hillier, Theatre Of Voices
Harmonia Mundi

De profundis clamavi ad te, Domine;
Domine, exaudi vocem meam. Fiant aures tuæ intendentes
in vocem deprecationis meæ.
Si iniquitates observaveris, Domine, Domine, quis sustinebit?
Quia apud te propitiatio est; et propter legem tuam sustinui te, Domine.
Sustinuit anima mea in verbo ejus:
Speravit anima mea in Domino.
A custodia matutina usque ad noctem, speret Israël in Domino.
Quia apud Dominum misericordia, et copiosa apud eum redemptio.
Et ipse redimet Israël ex omnibus iniquitatibus ejus.



1Out of the depths have I called to you, O LORD;
LORD, hear my voice; *
    let your ears consider well the voice of my supplication.
 
2If you, LORD, were to note what is done amiss, *
    O LORD, who could stand?
 
3For there is forgiveness with you; *
    therefore you shall be feared.

4I wait for the LORD; my soul waits for him; *
    in his word is my hope.
 
5My soul waits for the LORD,
more than watchmen for the morning, *
    more than watchmen for the morning.
 
6O Israel, wait for the LORD, *
    for with the LORD there is mercy;
 
7With him there is plenteous redemption, *
    and he shall redeem Israel from all their sins.
(BCP Psalm 130)

  1. A friend introduced me to some of the music of Arvo Part a couple of years ago. Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece that is new to me.
