Laudate Dominum


Laudate Dominum

Laudate Dominum (translated "O, Praise the Lord" or "Praise ye the Lord") are the opening words, in Latin, of Psalm 116 (Greek numbering) or 117 (Hebrew numbering). The shortest Psalm, it has been set to music by a number of composers, including William Byrd and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

As with the other Psalms, "Laudate Dominum" is concluded with a trinitarian doxology (Gloria Patri) when used in the Roman rite.[1] In Catholic churches, the Psalm may be sung after the blessing at the devotional service called Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.[2]

The title "Laudate Dominum" can also refer to Psalm 150 which begins with identical text. The exhortations to praise God through music in Psalm 150 have inspired settings from a number of composers.
