Quomodo Cantabimus [How shall we sing?] (Psalm 137:4-7) – William Byrd

William Byrd

William Byrd

Psalm 137:4-7

How shall we sing the Lord‘s song in a strange land?

If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.

If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.

Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.

Quomodo Cantabimus (1584), composed by William Byrd (1540/1543-1623)

    and the light of my eyes—it also has gone from me.
