Description

SATB a cappella (optional keyboard). The classic Elizabethan macaronic (Latin and English) motet by Morley. Also see this SAB version for smaller choirs.

Nolo mortem peccatoris; Haec sunt verba Salvatoris. [I do not wish the death of a sinner. These are the words of the Saviour.]
Father I am thine only Son, sent down from heav’n mankind to save.
Father, all things fulfilled and done according to thy will, I have.
Father, my will now all is this: Nolo mortem peccatoris.
Father, behold my painful smart, taken for man on ev’ry side;
Ev'n from my birth to death most tart, no kind of pain I have denied,
but suffered all, and all for this: Nolo mortem peccatoris.
