Vide Domine afflictionem composed by William Byrd (1540-1623). For SATTB choir a cappella. Liturgical Use: Penitential Seasons. Text: Latin. Choral. Vocal score. Text Language: Latin. Duration ca. 8 minutes. Published by Notre Dame Choir Editions (PE.NDC060).
With Text Language: Latin. Choral.
The text of this motet has neither a Biblical or liturgical source but, like several other similar texts set by Byrd, was also set by Clemens (non Papa), a composer who was known for his choice of unusual texts of a penitential cast. Bearing no musical similarity to Clemens's setting and conceived on a large-scale, Byrd's motet ranks among his most moving compositions - many vivid expressive details including moments of bold chromaticism, are molded into a broadly unfolding musical discourse that when well-managed is heart wrenching in its cumulative impact. ("Grant us, Lord, your long-desired peace... and have mercy on your sighing and weeping people.").
