A setting in a style reminiscent of Heinrich Schütz. The basso continuo accompaniment is obligatory and should not be ommitted. I would suggest to use only an organ without a doubling bass instrument because the bass part often runs parallel with the bass voice.
I had already written a first version of this piece 1989, but had used at that time the text of the so called "Einheitsübersetzung" which may not be freely distributed. Hence I have now rewritten the piece on the basis of Allioli's translation (early 19th century) and have also taken the opportunity to improve the piece considerably.

This edition only contains a figured bass line. A written out organ accompaniment is available from all-sheetmusic.de.
