Psalm 96:1-2; Psalm 98:1,5 [Latin]

O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth.

Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.

O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

Sing unto the Lord with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.

Cantate Domino, SV 293 a 6 (1620) composed by Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643)


Performed by Concerto Italiano, Rinaldo Alessandrini

Exodus 1:8,11,13; 2:23

Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:

23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

“Now there arose,” “And the children of Israel” (from Israel in Egypt), composed by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) and premiered in London on April 4, 1739
