Domine, salva nos
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Domine, salva nos, a prayer for help and for the coming of peace, draws its text from the story of Christ rebuking the storm at sea (Matthew 8: 25–26). Byrd uses a downward scale for the word ‘perimus’ (‘we perish’) as the disciples can be seen sinking below the waves before a beautifully serene phrase for ‘tranquillitatem’ and the use of an unprepared dominant seventh to make the final cadence even more poignant.
