2. By the waters of Babylon June 17 & 18 at 3pm at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 210 Richardson St, Middle Park
By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept … As for our harps, we hanged them up upon the trees that are therein. For they that led us away captive required of us then a song, saying “Sing us one of the songs of Sion” … “How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?”
Many composers have set this heart-wrenching text, telling of the exile of a people from their homeland. JS Bach sets the poem as a solemn hymn, Palestrina as a multi-voiced motet. Also on the program are Bach’s Motets Fürchte dich nicht and Ich lasse dich nicht and Poulenc’s Three Motets in a Time of Penitence. Click here to subscribe to 3 Concerts in Melbourne
