Stop War - In Pace

Get Flash to see this player.

Orlando di Lasso 1532-1594, former head of the Court's Chapel in my hometown Munich, inspired me to arrange his setting for three voices "In pace" for synths, drums, guitar and vocals.

I continue my series "Stop War". This piece is dedicated to all the peaceful people who prefer to make love, not war :-)

Vocal setting by Orlando di Lasso

Latin text taken from Ps. 4 ix-x:

In pace in idipsum dormiam et requiescam:
quoniam tu Domine singulariter in spe constituisti me.

English Translation:

Peacefully I immediately fall asleep and lie at rest,
because you alone, Lord, have given me security.

Superb modern adaptation - and as per usual, your vocal harmonies, sense of timing and delivery, are beyond my beleaguered praise. I really like the backing track too - which recontextualizes and invigorates this ancient text. Bravo!
