Graeme's Music

Graeme's vanity. Music he presumes to give thanks to the Glory of God.  At  least, how  po0r Graeme is willing to pay homage to God, via mankinds best musical efforts. Graeme's favourite's, posted periodically to hopefully uplift post helpful mucic during our trials on earth. Some written for specifically for God, most secular but fitting nevertheless.

Just lost your favourite Great Vampire Squid a King's ransom?  Just woken up with tanker loads of oil you don't remember buying after last night's drinking and trading bender? Blown the Paris Christmas party budget for a humongous French bank? This is the place to make one's peace with God before calling in sick and heading out to the airport and a new life in Switzerland or elsewhere.

Up first, Vivaldi show cases his orchestra of abandoned babies, mostly girls, now educated and grown up, 1705ish.  Good jobs beckon for some if the rich and well bred like the performance.  (First half.)

Bach the Great Mystery.
Is this by JSB? Was it written for organ or Violin? You decide. Piano Music.

Thomas Tallis at his best. The rarely heard Spem in Alium 1570ish. By way of the highly gifted Caroline  of Montana, USA.  "I have never put my hope in any other but in you, God of Israel, who will be angry, and yet become again gracious...."


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybQdoab92tw&feature=related

Spem in alium numquam habui praeter in te
Deus Israel
qui irasceris
et propitius eris
et omnia peccata hominum in tribulatione dimittis
Domine Deus
Creator coeli et terrae
respice humilitatem nostram

Meaning:

I have never put my hope in any other but in you
God of Israel
who will be angry
and yet become again gracious
and who forgives all the sins of suffering man
Lord God
Creator of Heaven and Earth
look upon our lowliness

We close Mark-Anthony Charpentier's (1636-1704) marsterpiece "March of Triumph." Little heard now inside or out side France.
