Vespers of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Every year, around the feast of the Immaculate Conception, I try to find 45 minutes to sit down and listen to the entire Vespro della Beata Vergine 1610(or "Vespers of the Blessed Virgin Mary") which he composed in 1610 for St. Mark's in Venice.

I haven't had time to listen to them yet this year, but I wanted to share with you this, "Dixit Dominus," which is one of my favorite psalms of the Vespers service. It is Psalm 110.

Also really amazing is the tenor aria, Nigra Sum, which is taken from the Song of Songs:
