Book Description

June 28 2007 Musica Dei Donum
for SATB double choir
Phillipe de Monte wrote Super flumina Babylonis (By the streams of Babylon, there we sat and wept) and sent it to William Byrd who responded by setting the subsequent verses of the psalm text Quomodo Cantabimus (How shall we sing the Lord's song in a foreign land). This edition allows these wonderful pieces to be sung as a unit or separately.

Product Description


The choice of pieces, however, is what makes this volume special ... The two composers evidently made contact, as de Monte sent Byrd his setting of Psalm 137 vv1-4: Super Fulmina Babylonis. Byrd responded witha setting of vv4-7 of the same Psalm , which is almost unsurpassed in its poignancy and expression. Can you think of a better combination for a volume, a concert, or more appropriately, a church service? Jonathan Wikeley, Music Teacher, August 08
