Ne irascaris, Domine
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Published in his 1589 Cantiones Sacrae, this double motet is one of Byrd’s masterpieces and must surely be one of his most forceful utterances inspired by the fate of the Catholic church in England. The emphasis laid on the word ‘desolata’ after the sad echoings of ‘Ierusalem’, and the chordal enunciations of ‘Sion deserta facta est’ invite comparison with The Lamentations of Tallis.
