Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – “Laudate Dominum”

Mozart, Age 11, by J. Vander Smissen

ვოლფგანგ ამადეუს მოცარტი – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 – 1791)

“Laudate Dominum”

Laudate Dominum are the opening words of Psalm 116 (Greek numbering) or 117 (Hebrew numbering) in Latin. As with the other Psalms, “Laudate Dominum” is concluded with a trinitarian doxology (Gloria Patri) when used in Roman Catholic liturgy. In Catholic churches, the Psalm may be sung after the blessing at the devotional service called Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

Latin text

Laudate Dominum omnes gentes
Laudate eum, omnes populi
Quoniam confirmata est
Super nos misericordia eius,
Et veritas Domini manet in aeternum.
Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper.
Et in saecula saeculorum.


English translation

Praise the Lord, all nations;
Praise Him, all people.
For He has bestowed
His mercy upon us,
And the truth of the Lord endures forever.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and forever,
and for generations of generations.


Mozart sung by soprano solo with chorus and is the fifth of six parts of a larger piece known as the Vesperae solennes de confessore (K.339).
