Tuesday's Art: Light of light

Here's another piece from 16th century English composer William Byrd, entitled "Christe, Qui Lux Es et Dies" or "Christ, Who Art the Light and the Day," performed by Stile Antico in 2007 and loosely translated by me. It's a beautiful prayer for undisturbed rest, for protection from evil, and for remembering that our LORD, too, was once burdened with this mortal form. Enjoy.

Suggested verse to repeat if it's a difficult day is Psalm 4:8a
PRC buddies, remember to breathe!
"In peace, -------> 5 count inhale
I will both lie down and sleep." -------> 5 count exhale
