This humble prayer is simply and beautifully set for a cappella choir. The vocal lines remain completely on the staff, making the vocal ranges approachable for most choirs. Excerpted from Trotta’s major work Te Deum, it may be performed in Latin or English.
Therefore we beseech you to come to aid your servants, who by your blood most precious have been redeemed.
Allow them to be counted with your saints in glory everlasting.
Te ergo quǽsumus, tuis fámulis súbveni, quos pretióso sánguine redemísti.
