Sicut Cervus

by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (c. 1525 – 1594)

Open the score in a new tab: Sicut Cervus

Psalm 42:

Sicut cervus desiderat ad fontes aquarum,           As the hart longs for the water springs,
ita desiderat anima mea ad te, Deus.                     So longs my soul for thee, O God.

Part I is heard from 0:00 until 3:09.

Try the speed control. At the bottom of the video display, there is a little thing that looks like a gear. Click it and you will see options for changing the speed of the video. (Works on some browsers. I use Chrome, and it works.)
