Music for Holy Week–Holy Monday

Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence–Bairstow
Out of the Deep–Grayston Ives
Schaffe in mir, Gott, ein rein Herz–Brahms (text from Psalm 51)
Miserere Me, Deus–Allegri (text from Psalm 51)


  1. Kind of weird to see everyone dressed in formal wear singing the Allegri. Seems out of context somehow

  2. Excellent as always, Kris.

  3. Wow — that performance of the Grayston Ives piece was fascinating. And the Tallis Scholars were stunning.

    It’s way past my bedtime, but I couldn’t stop listening. Thanks for these — you continue to impress with your finds, Kristine.

  4. Kristine says:

    Yeah, woodboy, I know. The Kings College choir definitely looks more “right,” but I really like the little extra warmth of a woman soprano instead of a boy. (Also, in some weird way, it makes me happy when people who are not especially beautiful have magnificent voices).

  5. Exquisite, Kristine. Thank you.
