I've been working at this #LentInMusic project for a handful of years now—2016 and 2017, at least on this site—and I love it more and more each year. I hope you do, as well. (As in the past, I'll be collecting the year's pieces in a YouTube playlist, found HERE.)
Today's selection? Carlo Gesualdo's "Peccantem me quotidie:"
Peccantem me quotidie
et non penitentem,
Timor mortis conturbat me.
Quia in inferno nulla est redemptio.
Miserere mei, Deus, et salva me.
I who sin every day
and am not penitent
the fear of death troubles me:
For in hell there is no redemption.
Have mercy upon me, O God, and save me.
