Missa etcetera

Western religious music from different centuries. In this episode, we’ll listen to six of the seven penitential psalms arranged by German composers from the 16th and 17th century.

Since time immemorial, you can hear the seven penitential psalms (6, 31/32, 37/38, 50/51, 101/102, 129/130 and 142/143) during the Lenten season. The first song is from the Vulgate, the Latin translation of the bible, and the second is from Protestant translations.
