Sicut Cervus – Palestrina

Shrine Talks

This is a beautiful motet by Palestrina. Get familiar with hearing Latin in the liturgy as Latin is the primary language of the liturgy. Listen to the music and pray. Such music inspires true prayer.
The translation of the text is as follows:
“As the deer longs for the springs of water, so my soul longs for you, O Lord.”
This motet is perfect for reflecting on the sacrament of Baptism.
