Sadness and Anxiety With William Byrd

No better way to purge anxiety and sadness than through the music of Byrd!

 

Tristitia et anxietas occupaverunt interiora mea.
Mœstum factum est cor meum in dolore, et contenebrati sunt oculi mei.
Væ mihi, quia peccavi.
Sed tu, Domine, qui non derelinquis sperantes in te,
consolare et adjuva me propter nomen sanctum tuum, et miserere mei.

Sadness and anxiety have occupied my interior.
My heart is made sad in suffering, my eyes have become darkened.
Woe is me, because I have sinned.
But thou, O Lord, who dost not abandon those hoping in you.
comfort and help me on account of your holy name, and have mercy on me.
