Chant at Silverstream: Listen!

The schola of Silverstream Priory recorded the poignant responsory, Media vita in morte sumus, trusting that it will, in some way, bring comfort and hope to those who listen to it while looking at the images that accompany the chant. You will find it here: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0E3BIOnoa4>.

In the midst of life we are in death; from whom shall we seek help, save Thee, O Lord? Who for our sins art justly angered. * Holy God, Holy mighty One, Holy merciful Saviour, hand us not over to the bitterness of death.
1. In Thee our fathers hoped; they hoped, and Thou hast liberated them. * Holy God, Holy mighty One, Holy merciful Saviour, hand us not over to the bitterness of death.
2. To Thee our fathers cried; they cried and were not confounded. * Holy God, Holy mighty One, Holy merciful Saviour, hand us not over to the bitterness of death.
3. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. * Holy God, Holy mighty One, Holy merciful Saviour, hand us not over to the bitterness of death.
