“Missa Misericordias Domini” by Josef Rheinberger

A commentary on this week’s music by Dr. James T. Gerber, Music Associate

Today, our chamber choir will be singing the Gloria, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei from Rheinberger’s Missa Misericordias Domini (Mass of the Mercy of the Lord). Additionally, they are singing two of his sacred motets.

Laudate Dominum, quia benignus est:
Praise ye the Lord, for He is good:
psallite nomini ejus, quoniam suavis est:
sing ye to His Name, for He is sweet:
omnia quaecumque voluit,
whatsoever He pleased,
fecit in coelo et in terra.
He hath done in heaven and in earth.

Dextera Domini fecit virtutem,
The right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength;
dextera Domini exaltavit me.
the right hand of the Lord has exalted me.
Non moriar, sed vivam,
I shall not die, but live,
et narrabo opera Domini.
and declare the works of the Lord.
