author of text
Psalm 126: 4-6; translated by ? Richard Verstegan in The Primer, or Office of the blessed Virgin Marie, 1599

Turn our captivity, O Lord (Psalm 126: 4–6) is a masterpiece, plangent and imploring but with a confident triplet section for the ‘jollity’ that the blessed will inherit.

Turn our captivity, O Lord (psaume 126: 4–6) est un chef-d’œuvre plaintif et implorant, mais avec une confiante section en triolets pour la «jollity» que les bienheureux hériteront.

Français: Hypérion

Turn our captivity, O Lord (Psalm 126, 4–6) ist ein Meisterwerk, klagend und flehend, jedoch mit einer zuversichtlichen Triolenpassage versehen, die sich auf die „Freude“ („jollity“) bezieht, die den Seligen zuteil wird.
