What is the name of this?


#1

This is my second time posting this because someone removed my other thread. I don’t know why it would be removed. I heard this during the liturgy and wanted to see if someone could identify it.

I listened to it and it doesn’t sound familiar to me. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful.


#3

Its definitely a Hymn is it in Italian rather than Latin, sorry don’t know the name,


#4

To me it sounds like Andre Boccelli.


#5

It is the ancient Lenten hymn Parce Domine. If you listen closely you can hear the refrain sung twice

Parce, Domine,
Parce populo tuo:
Ne in aeternum
irascaris nobis.

An English translation would be

Spare, O Lord,
Spare Your people,
Do not be angry with us forever

I could not make out the verses. They might be in English. Either way they didn’t seem to match the traditional verses.

I find it hauntingly beautiful.

From the background sounds, I think if might be being sung at communion time.

If my memory serves me correctly, I believe it is sometimes used at funerals also.
