Sound Samples

Jehovah quam multi sunt
What art thou
Lord, what is man, lost man
Hosanna to the highest
Tell me, some pitying angel tell
Since God so tender a regard
In the midst of Life
Peaceful is he and most secure
Lord! I have sinned
O all ye people, clap your hands
In guilty night
The night is come
Close Thine Eyes, Z.184
A Hymne to God the Father, 'Wilt thou forgive that sin'
Now that the Sun
Salvator mundi
