Isaiah 6:2-3; 1 John 5:7 [Latin]

Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.


Duo Seraphim (2005), composed by Rihards Dubra (b. 1964)

Psalm 6:1-10

O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak: O Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O Lord, how long?

Return, O Lord, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies’ sake.

For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.

The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.

10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.


Ach, Herr, strafe mich nicht, composed by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767)

Psalm 51:11,12,17,8

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.


Cast me not away (1848), composed by Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876)


Performed by The Choir of Lincoln College (Oxford), conductor Christopher Eastwood
