Auf dem Gebirge, SWV 396

Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672)

Original Text

English Translation

 

Auf dem Gebirge
hat man ein Geschrei gehöret,
viel Klagens, Weinens und Heulens;
Rahel beweinete ihre Kinder
und wollt sich nicht trösten lassen,
denn es war aus mit ihnen.

From the mountains
a cry has been heard,
weeping, crying, and wailing.
Rachel mours her children
and she will not be comforted
for they are no more.



This piece was performed by the SFBC in Ceremonies and Celebrations: Festive Music of the Colossal Baroque on April 19, 1997, and at Early Masters of the German Baroque on October 26,1996.
