Harmonizer: Claude Goudimel

The music of Claude Goudimel (b. Besançon, France, c. 1505; d. Lyons, France, 1572) was first published in Paris, and by 1551 he was composing harmonizations for some Genevan psalm tunes-initially for use by both Roman Catholics and Protestants. He became a Calvinist in 1557 while living in the Huguenot community in Metz. When the complete Genevan Psalter with its unison melodies was published in 1562, Goudimel began to compose various polyphonic settings of all the Genevan tunes. He actually composed three complete harmonizations of the Genevan Psalter, usually with the tune in the tenor part: simple hymn-style settings (1564), slightly more complicated harmonizations (1565), and quite elaborate, motet-like settings (1565-1566).

Texts

Out of the Depths I Cry, LORD

Out of the depths I cry, LORD.
O Lord, please hear my call.
Let your ears be attentive;
I beg for mercy, LORD.
If you marked our offenses,

But you grant us forgiveness;
therefore we stand in awe.

Notes

GENEVAN 130 was first published in the 1539 edition of the Genevan Psalter. The 1564 harmonization by Claude Goudimel (PHH 6) originally placed the melody in the tenor. GENEVAN 130 is a Dorian tune consisting of four long lines in which the rhythm of line 3 is a fitting contrast to the repeated rhythmic pattern of the other lines. Sing the first stanza in a subdued manner and the second stanza boldly, with bright, full organ registration.
