Deus, Deus Meus -- Choeur Gregorien de Paris

A medieval Gregorian chant for Palm Sunday, Psalm 22, here sung by the Gregorian Choir of Paris. Graced by stunning manuscript illustrations of the period, this video is well worth viewing in full screen mode.

Psalm 22:

1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? *

and are so far from my cry

and from the words of my distress?

2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you do not answer; *

by night as well, but I find no rest.

3 Yet you are the Holy One, *

enthroned upon the praises of Israel.

4 Our forefathers put their trust in you; *

they trusted, and you delivered them.

5 They cried out to you and were delivered; *

they trusted in you and were not put to shame.
