De profundis clamavi [Out of the depths have I cried] (Psalm 130:1-8) – Josquin des Prez Posted on October 14, 2012 Posted in des Prez, Josquin (c. 1440-1521) Portrait of Josquin des Prés. (Image via Wikipedia) Psalm 130:1-8 [Latin] 1 Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord. 2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. 3 If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? 4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. 5 I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. 6 My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. 7 Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. 8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities. — De profundis (1515) by Josquin des Prez (c. 1440-1521) Watch this video on YouTube Performed by the Hilliard Ensemble BUY MP3/ALBUM MP3: De profundis clamavi, by Josquin des Prez / Motets and Chansons / Hilliard Ensemble / EMI Records, Virgin Classics SHEET MUSIC Three Psalms — Dominus Regnavit; De Profundis; Domine, Ne in Furore.

A fascinating project: I have just stumbled in by accident, but will have to come back & explore further. Keep up the good work, it\\’s a great idea!May I recommend to you the Clerks Group recording of Josquin\\’s \\”Liber generationis Jesu Christi\\”, a setting of Matthew\\’s genealogy of Christ? It\\’s a bizarre text to set but a lovely setting. Josquin also set Luke\\’s genealogy: it\\’s never been recorded but I\\’m hoping to rectify that situation sometime!!David
Thank you, David. I appreciate the kind words and your recommendations!
Just remembered I’d already uploaded a copy privately to let a friend listen:
Sounds magnificent. I didn’t find a copy on YouTube and probably would not be permitted to embed it here, but thank you for the link!
