Luke 1:46-55 [Latin]

46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.

50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

54 He hath helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

From Magnificat and Nunc dimittis in G, Op. 81 (1904), by Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924)

Psalms 47:5; 103:19 [Latin]

God ascended in hearty song; and the Lord in the voice of a trump. (God ascended with a hearty song; the Lord went up with the sound of trumpets.)

19 The Lord hath made ready his seat in heaven; and his realm shall be lord of all. (The Lord hath prepared his throne in heaven; and he shall rule over all as their King.)

Rejoice in the Lord alway (Philippians 4:4-7) – Anonymous

Philippians 4:4-7

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Let your moderation [“softness” in music text] be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Rejoice in the Lord alway (mid-16th century), “Attributed (probably incorrectly) to John Redford” (CPDL)


Performed by the Greenwich Village Chamber Singers

Psalm 6:1-4

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.

O Lord, in thy wrath rebuke me not (year unknown), by Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625)


Performed by Schola Cantorum Sopianensis, Pécs, Hungary, Conductor: Liu Wei, China, in the Teréz Church, Budapest, 2011
