Domine, non sum dignus
Domine, non sum dignus is an exquisite setting of words spoken by a centurion when Christ offers to come to his house to heal the man’s servant (Luke 7: 6–7), a text most often used as a preparation before receiving the host at Mass. Byrd displays his usual madrigalian features, especially at the words ‘sed tantum dic verbum’ (‘but only say the word’) where the imitation comes thick and fast before the healing of the final section.
