Thomas Weelkes: When David heard — Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum

February 2, 2012

Henry_Stuart_Prince_of_Wales_03Thomas Weelkes (1576–1623) was a talented, popular, and gifted madrigalist, who moved from one job to another because of his unruly and drunken behaviour. Perhaps this was why none of his  church music was published during his lifetime. His setting of the short Absalom lament in the Second Book of Samuel highlights the deeply personal nature of King David's public and private mourning for his dead son:

When David heard that Absalom was slain, he went up to his chamber over the gate, and wept: and thus he said, O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! would God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!

(From: 2 Samuel 18: 33  And the king was much moved, and went up to the chamber over the gate, and wept: and as he went, thus he said, O my son Ab'salom! my son, my son Ab'salom! would God I had died for thee, O Ab'salom, my son, my son!)

The choir of the Abbey School, Tewkesbury sing Rev Clement Cotterill Scholefield's beautiful hymn The day Thou gavest Lord is ended. I'm just uploading this because it is a favourite hymn of mine and I adore the verse by the trebles and the wonderful descant.
