Vinea mea electa


By Frederick Frahm. Music for organ solo.


Music after a text from the Good Friday Responsories:

Vinea mea electa, ego te plantavi:
quomodo conversa es in amaritudinem,
ut me crucifigeres et Barrabam dimitteres.
Sepivi te, et lapides elegi ex te,
et ædificavi turrim.

O vineyard, my chosen one. I planted thee.
How is thy sweetness turned into bitterness,
to crucify me and take Barabbas in my place?
I protected thee; I took the hard stones away from thy path,
and built a tower in thy defence.
