Lauda anima mea Dominum


Orlande de Lassus (also Orlandus Lassus, Orlando di Lasso, Roland de Lassus, or Roland Delattre) (1532 (possibly 1530) 14 June 1594) was a Franco-Flemish composer of late Renaissance music. Along with Palestrina (of the Roman School), he is today considered to be the chief representative of the mature polyphonic style of the Franco-Flemish School, and he was the most famous and influential musician in Europe at the end of the 16th century.


Psalm 145 (146) : Lauda anima mea Dominum

Lauda anima mea Dominum laudabo Dominum in vita mea psallam Deo meo quamdiu fuero nolite confidere in principibus
In filiis hominum quibus non est salus
Exibit spiritus eius et revertetur in terram suam in illa die peribunt omnes cogitationes eorum


Praise the Lord, O my soul, in my life I will praise the Lord: I will sing to my God as long as I shall be. Put not your trust in princes:
in the children of men, in whom there is no salvation.
His spirit shall go forth, and he shall return into his earth: in that day all their thoughts shall perish.

Performed : Currende & I Fiamminghi
