Rorate Caeli (Conductor's Score & Instrumental Parts)


"Rorate Caeli" is the perfect contemplative piece for the Advent season or a holiday concert. The choral parts are lush but accesible and are complimented by a Gregorian chant-like soprano solo. The instruments create an atmospheric wash of sound to accompany the choral parts.

  • Text

    Traditional Latin Text

    Roráte caéli désuper,

    et núbes plúant jústum.

    Víde Dómine afflictiónem pópuli túi,

    et mítte quem missúrus es:

    emítte Agnum dominatórem térræ,

    de Pétra desérti ad móntem fíliæ Síon:

    ut áuferat ípse júgum captivitátis nóstræ.


    Drop down, ye heavens from above,

    And let the skies pour down righteousness.

    Behold, O Lord, the affliction of thy people,

    And send forth him whom thou wilt send;

    Send forth the Lamb, the ruler of the earth,

    From Petra of the desert to the mount of the daughter of Sion:

    That he may take away the yoke of our captivity.
