Laetatus sum
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
‘I was glad when they said unto me: We will go into the house of the Lord’ are the opening lines of Laetatus sum, a setting of Psalm 122 (121). This is a joyous text which captured the imagination of many composers, and Victoria is no exception. He responded by composing a superb triple-choir motet (for two SATB choirs and one SSABar choir), which uses all the resources of polychoral writing and vocal orchestration to create a vocal structure of great brilliance, richness and variety, and which fully justifies Nappi’s description of him as an ‘unsurpassable composer’.
