Purcell: “In the midst of life” (Intrada, Ekaterina Antonenko)
Great performance (Intrada vocal group, Ekaterina Antonenko) of Henry Purcell‘s “In the midst of life”, best known because it was one of the anthems or funeral sentences used for Queen Mary‘s funeral service; see also Wikipedia’s list of compositions by Henry Purcell…
In the midst of life we are in death:
of whom may we seek for succour,
but of thee, O Lord, who for our sins art justly displeased?
Yet, O Lord God most holy, O Lord most mighty,
O holy and most merciful Saviour,
deliver us not into the bitter pains of eternal death.
