Good Friday psalm

The psalm sung for Morning Prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours this morning is Psalm 51.  The most beautiful setting of this is the “Miserere mei, Deus” (“Have mercy on me, O God”), composed by Gregrio Allegri in the 17th century.

One of my favorite choir ensembles, the UK group called “The Sixteen”, have a lovely version.

About Kleiner

Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
