  • "For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears:" [2 Tim. 4:3]

    O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding the profane novelties of words, and oppositions of knowledge falsely so called. [1 Tim. 6:20]

  • This has always struck a chord with my melancholy:

     
    Disagreeing with Ladislaus is heretical and blasphemous!

  • This has always struck a chord with my melancholy:



    And this one by Beethoven as well:

    A glass of Portugese red, a driving winter snowstorm, and a fire in the woodstove.

    A feather quill pen, ink pot, and diary.

    Then hit play:


     
    Disagreeing with Ladislaus is heretical and blasphemous!

  • Core 'ngrato
    Riccardo Cordiferro

    Catarì, Catarì,
    pecchè me dici
    sti parole amare;
    pecchè me parle
    e 'o core me turmiente, Catarì?
    Nun te scurdà
    ca t'aggio date 'o core,
    Catarì, nun te scurdà!
    Catarì, Catarì, che vene
    a dicere stu parlà
    ca me dà spaseme?
    Tu nun'nce pienze a stu dulore mio,
    tu nun'nce pienze,
    tu nun te ne cure.
    Core, core 'ngrato,
    t'aie pigliato 'a vita mia,
    tutt'è passato e
    nun'nce pienze cchiù!
    Catarì, Catarì
    tu nun o saie ca 'nfino int' 'a na chiesa
    io so' trasuto e aggio priato a Dio,
    Catarì
    e ll'aggio ditto pure a 'o cunfessore
    I' sto' a suffrì pe chella lla'!
    Sto a suffrì, sto a suffrì
    nun se po credere
    sto' a suffrì tutte li strazie
    e 'o cunfessore ch'e' persona santa
    m'ha ditto: figlio mio, lassala sta', lassala sta'!



    Ungrateful heart
    English Translation © Nicholas Cornforth
     
    Ungrateful heart
    Catarina, Catarina,
    why do say
    such bitter words;
    Why do you speak
    and torment my heart, Catarina?
    Do not forget
    I gave you my heart,
    Catarina do not forget!
    Catarina, Catarina, what meaning
    Do your words hold,
    Words that leave me shuddering?
    You do not think of the pain I feel,
    You do not think,
    You do not care.
    Ungrateful, ungrateful heart
    You have taken my life,
    All has passed
    And I am in your thoughts no more!
    Catarina, Catarina
    You do not know that I even went into a church
    And prayed to God,
    Catarina
    I confessed to a priest
    That I was suffering for you!
    I was suffering, I was suffering
    Suffering beyond words
    I was suffering every punishment and pain
    And the priest, a saintly man
    Turned to me and said: my son, let her go, let her go!







    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.
    -Geoffrey Chaucer

  • (Listen closely at 2:48 or so; some of the basses are singing a lower octave not in the score... it's quite amazing)
    Luke 1:41 -- And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.

  • Good stuff. Gardiner is the conductor for Baroque chorales of Handel and BAch.

    Qui non est alius
    Qui pugnet pro nobis
    Nisi  tu Deus noster

  • I once heard a Tantum Ergo sung to this very same melody. Beautiful. Words and music match perfectly.

  • Piano Concerto #3 in d minor. Incredibly difficult to play. Legendary calendar.
