music for the last day of 2016 – Andreas Hammerschmidt: Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich

by ada

Let’s interrupt my rather intermittent broadcasting of the chronicles of the summer of 2015 for a moment to say goodbye to the parting year – a year, which was terrible on so many levels – and to set new hopes regarding the coming one.

There is nothing more important I could ask for 2017 than peace, so here is an Early Baroque setting of the ancient Gregorian antiphon Da pacem, Domine; translated by Martin Luther in 1529 and put to music by Andreas Hammerschmidt some hundred and thirty years later.

Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich, Herr Gott, zu unsern Zeiten. Es ist doch ja kein andrer nicht, der für uns könnte streiten, denn Du, unser Gott, alleine. 

Gib unsern Fürsten und aller Obrigkeit Frieden und gut Regiment, dass wir unter ihnen ein geruhigs und stilles Leben führen mögen in aller Gottseligkeit und Ehrbarkeit.

Amen.
