Cantate Domino from Cantiones sacræ

Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672)

Original Text

English Translation

 

Cantate Domino canticum novum;
laus ejus in ecclesia sanctorum.
Lætetur Israel in eo qui fecit eum,
et filiæ Syon exultent in rege suo.
Laudent nomen ejus
in tympano et choro:
in psalterio psalant ei.

O sing ye to the Lord, sing ye a new song;
Hie praise is in the company of his saints.
Let all of Israel rejoice now in him who made us,
let children of Zion rejoice now and praise Jehovah.
Let them praise Him forever,
with tymbrel and harp and dancing:
let everything praise God.



This piece was performed by the SFBC in Early Masters of the German Baroque on October 26, 1996.
