General Information

Title: Bleib bei uns Herr
Composer: Michael Praetorius

Genre: SacredMotet

Language: German
Instruments: A cappella

Description: It seems that Praetorius copied Antonio Scandello's "Bona Sera" and changed the text as well as some rythms and notes. Both composers worked in Dresden, so it is supposable that Praetorius found the piece there.

Bleib bei uns, Herr, denn es will Abend werden,
laß dein Licht leuchten auch zu unsern Zeiten,
dafür wir deinen Namen wolln loben ewig, Amen.

Let Thy light shine upon our time as well,
that we might wish to ever praise Thy Name. (after Luke 24:29)
