    Here is a motet I've just completed on the text Quare trisis es, anima mea... from Psalm 42 (Vulgate) PDF & MP3 (Edit: just uploaded the correct PDF--wonky layout in the 5th bar.)

    Quare trisis es, anima mea? et quare conturbas me? Spera in Deo, quoniam adhuc confitebor illi: salutare vultus mei, et Deus meus.

    Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise Him, the light of my countenance, and my God.
