New Videos Released
These videos, filmed before Lockdown at St James' Church, Sussex Gardens, features the Schola singing Justorum Animae and Ceolos Ascendit by Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924), the first and second of his Three Latin Motets.
The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and the trial of evil will not touch them. They seem to the eyes of the ignorant to have died, but in fact they are at peace.
Today has gone up into glory
Jesus Christ, the King of glory,
who sits on the right of the Father
and who rules heaven and earth. Alleluia.
Now all the songs of the Patriarch David
have been fulfilled,
now the Lord sits with the Lord
on the throne of God. Alleluia.
In this great triumph
let us bless the Lord,
let the Holy Trinity be praised,
let us give thanks to God. Alleluia. Amen.
