Music For Lent, 2016 (Day 16)

Yet another "In pace in idipsum," this time courtesy of England's own Thomas Tallis.

In pace, in idipsum dormiam et requiescam.
Si dedero somnum oculis meis,
et palpebris meis dormitationem,
dormiam et requiescam.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
In peace and into the same I shall sleep and rest.
If I give slumber to my eyes
and to my eyelids drowsiness,
I shall sleep and rest.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

Quick Programming Note: A faithful friend (and reader) of the blog wondered if there was a way to put together a playlist of the #LentInMusic selections to date. And thanks to the wonders of YouTube, it's actually pretty easy. So easy, in fact, that I feel slightly chagrined for not thinking of it sooner.
