#singwithG6: Rheinberger’s Abendlied

Now it’s your turn! For our first #singwithG6 we have chosen one of our favourite pieces: a sacred motet by Josef Rheinberger which the composer first penned in 1855 at the age of 15. It is perhaps his most famous choral work, which looks backward to the great sacred music of the Renaissance.

We recorded this piece from our separate homes during isolation and hope you will enjoy singing along from yours!

Text and translations

Bleib bei uns,
denn es will Abend werden,
und der Tag hat sich geneiget.

Bide with us,
for evening shadows darken,
and the day will soon be over.

Resta con noi,
poiché viene la sera,
e il giorno volge al termine.
