Psalm 119 - Herr lass meine Klage
Johann Hermann Schein (20 January 1586 – 19 November 1630) was a German composer of the early Baroque era. He was born in Grünhain and died in Leipzig. He was one of the first to import the early Italian stylistic innovations into German music, and was one of the most polished composers of the period.
"Lord, hear my cry" is one of numerous Psalm Settings made by Johann Schein for five voices and are lovely examples of late renaissance counterpoint. This setting is of Psalm 119, verses 145 - 152
Let my cry come before you, O Lord; give me discernment according to your word.
Let my prayer come before you; rescue me according to your promise.
May my lips pour forth your praise, as you teach me your laws.
