“Laudate Dominum”

This piece by the great composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of my favorite selections from the Classical Era. It combines two of my greatest loves into one fine and harmonious whole. Rarely have holy scripture and music been so well united. The piece is arranged for a soprano and choir. The text of the piece comes from Psalm 117 and is rendered in Latin. The title “Laudate Dominum” is probably best translated “O, Praise the Lord” in English. On a personal note, I had the privilege of performing this song with the Armstrong Atlantic State University Chorale in my undergrad years. Performing this song was truly an incredible experience. I hope you enjoy what I believe to be one of Mozart’s great works.
