In Thy Presence, Rest

Life On Van Island  Passion Week, as I know it, becomes more reflective and plaintive as it moves ahead. In keeping with this, here are the Cambridge Singers with the Latin Vespers text, Jesu, dulcis memoria, set in a motet by Tomás Luis de Victoria.

Jesu, dulcis memoria,  Jesus, the very thought of Thee,
dans vera cordis gaudia,  with sweetness fills my breast,
sed super mel et omnia,  but sweeter far Thy face to see,
eius dulcis praesentia.  and in Thy presence, rest.
