Esteemed Readers, here is another little piece of the Sacral music by Jean-Baptiste Lully. It belongs to the same set of “Les Petits Motets” & is called Omnes gentes. They are based on Psalms/Salmi 46-47 expressed in accordance with Lully’s passion & artistic vision. I believe that the Sacral music has been exceptional in any epoch. So we should be more curious & popularize it more in our dark days of the world. The light must come from our hearts, while the Sacred music is the fire to burn it.
I attach the text of Psalm/Salmo 47 to add the sense & solemnity to your listening:
O clap your hands together all ye people: O sing unto God with a voice of melody.
For the Lord is high, and to be feared: he is the great King above all the earth.
He hath subdued the people under us: and the nations under our feet.
He hath chosen his inheritance for us: the excellency of Jacob, which he loved.
God is gone up with a merry noise: and the Lord with the sound of the trump.
O sing praises, sing praises unto our God: O sing praises, sing praises unto our King.
For God is the king of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
God shall reign over the nations: God sitteth upon his holy seat.
The princes of the people are gathered together with the God of Abraham:
for the mighty ones of the earth are highly exalted.
Gloria Patri! Vive le Roy! 🙂
