Laudate Dominum

Laudate Dominum by Mozart

“Laudate Dominum” from Vesperae solennes de confessore, KV 339
by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Singer: Kiri te Kanawa

The first part of the text is the entire Psalm 116  [117]. With just two verses and sixteen words in Hebrew, it is the shortest of all 150 psalms. As with the other Psalms, “Laudate Dominum” is concluded with a trinitarian doxology (Gloria Patri) when used in the Roman rite.  In Catholic churches, the Psalm may be sung after the blessing at the devotional service called Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

et véritas Domini mánet in æternum
Praise the Lord, all ye nations (peoples),
praise him, all ye peoples.
For his loving kindness (mercy)
has been bestowed upon us,
and the truth of the Lord endures for eternity
 [At this point all rise
and mark themselves
with the Sign of the Cross
as they sing the Glory Be]

As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
