SAATBaB Scoring legend Penitential ISMN M-2056-0560-5
A stark setting of the opening passage of Savonarola's meditation on Psalm 50 (51) Miserere mei Deus. This text, which was already translated into many languages in the 16th century, was set by many composers. Lassus' setting, scored originally for mezzo, alto, alto, tenor, bass and subbass (ideal for male voices) is here offered a tone higher. Set in the Phrygian mode, which offers little scope for relief, it nonetheless moves from despair to confidence.
