William Byrd: Aspice Domine quia facta est

Aspice, Domine, quia facta est desolata
civitas plena divitiis: sedet in tristitia; non
est qui consoletur eam nisi tu, Deus

Behold, O Lord, how the city filled with riches
is made desolate: she sits in misery; and there is
none to comfort her except thee, our God.

(Matins Respond for November; Magnificat
Antiphon for the 2nd Sunday in November,
Sarum and Roman Rites)
