Justitiae Domine – Michael John Trotta

Justitiae Domine – Michael John Trotta

Beautiful a cappella harmonies on a Latin text from Psalm 19 are a wonderful way to develop part independence and musical sensitivity. Opening on a simple unison note, the harmonies build in accessible counterpoint before a contrasting homophonic middle section. Lyrical and expressive, this piece is suitable for concerts, festivals, and services.

Justitiae Domini rectae, laetificantes corda;
et judicia eius dulciora super mel et favum.
Nam servus tuus custodit ea.

The law of the Lord is just, and brings joy to the heart;
and his ways are sweeter than honey, sweeter than honey from the honeycomb,
for your servant that keeps them.
