Orlande de Lassus (±1530-1594): Exaudi, Deus, orationem meam

De Lassus’ four-part setting of the first verses of Psalm 55 is unusual precisely because it is a four-part setting. Less than a quarter of his surviving motets are for four parts. It’s a lovely piece very supplicatory in tone as you might expect from Psalm 55. Enjoy :-).
