Agnus Dei

300.00

William Byrd: Composer

Jimmy Kachulis: Transcribed, edited and arranged

A slowly unwinding, hypnotic, anguished cry for forgiveness and mercy from the Deity. A particularly poignant description of the anxiety felt by a Byrd, a practicing Catholic in Protestant Elizabethan England. The dissonant clashes perfectly capture the angst of the continuing religious strife of the time.

 

Text:
Lamb of God who takes away all our mistakes
Have mercy on us and grant us peace
