Music For Lent, 2016 (Day 34)

No, I didn't pick today's "Iusti autem" motet because I find its composer's name (Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck) so bizarre and wonderful. But yes, that's exactly the sort of thing I would do. Interestingly, Sweelinck was significantly more influential as a teacher than as a composer, including so dramatically shaping a generation of German organists that he becamse known as "the maker of organists." (One more time, playlist.)

Iusti autem in perpetuum vivent:
t apud Dominum est merces eorum,
et cogitatio eorum apud Altissimum.

But the just shall live for evermore:
and their reward is with the Lord,
and their thoughts with the most High.
