Psalm 34:1-3 [Latin]

1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

Benedicam Dominum by Hieronymus Praetorius (1560-1629)
[This program and YouTube video by a Collegium Musicum credit Michael Praetorius but there is this detailed score available through CPDL crediting Hieronymus. I’m uncertain which it is, but leaning towards Hieronymus. Please let me know if this is incorrect.]
