A. Campra

Beati Omnes

      Andre Campra was a leading French composer who lived from 1660-1744.  He wrote cantatas, Sacred music, and many works for the stage.  In this motet, written in 1706 Campra loosely uses the text from Psalm 127: Blessed are those who fear the Lord, Who walk in his ways.  The labors of your hands mean you will eat; You are blessed, at it will be well with you.  Your wife fruitful like a vine, within the bricks of your house
