Henry Purcell & Thou Knowest & Funeral March & Lenten Music

Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, by Henry Purcell (1659-1695): “Thou Knowest, Lord” and Funeral March.

The March is famously in the soundtrack of Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. (Sunday music that is in the movies of Kubrick is getting to be a thing around here.) Choir of Clare College Cambridge directed by Timothy Brown, and the Baroque Brass of London.

Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts;
shut not thy merciful ears unto our pray’rs;
but spare us, Lord most holy, O God most mighty.
O holy and most merciful Saviour,
thou most worthy Judge eternal,
suffer us not, at our last hour,
for any pains of death, to fall away from thee.

Sunday Offering & Bist du bei mir & Aafje Heynis

Bist du bei mir (With you at my side), recorded in 1956.

I’m in the middle of an anniversary blog recalibration, but the Sunday tradition continues. Aafje Heynis (contralto), Pierre Palle (organ). This used to be attributed to Bach but now thought to be by Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel.

Sunday Music & Bach & Kyrie Eleison & Miku Hatsune

Johann Sebastian Bach, “Kyrie Eleison,” sung by Miku Hatsune and vocaloid companions.

Taken from Prelude and Fugue No. 9 in E Major from The Well-Tempered Clavier, BWV 878.
