Attende Domine | Chants for Lent
To the best of my knowledge, the melody of this chant, "Attende Domine", comes from a 17th century codex while the text comes from a 10th century Mozarabic codex. It speaks of the penitent's admission of his sin and guilt, without ever giving way to depression or despair, wonderfully captured by the joyful yet peaceful melody. The soul, full of trust, confesses its sins and calmly places itself in hands of its Redeemer, knowing, without a doubt, that He will forgive those who are truly sorry for their sins.

Truly beautiful. Thank you🕊
I wonder what the reverb is like in Heaven? I am sure you will get the chance to sing this upstairs with a couple of billion angels providing backing vocals. So beautiful. I read once about a saint who heard an angel pluck a string in their instrument and they said the sound was so beautiful they thought they would die of joy. That's plucking one string! What does a celestial choir sound like? Thanks for sharing!
