Arrangement of this very effective and affective anthem by Thomas Weelkes
This is one of the greatest emotional expressions of the late Renaissance.
Absalom, son of King David, was a handsome prince and considered by some to be worthy of the throne of Israel,
even before David's death.
One day, as Absalom went riding, a tree's branches caught his luxuriant hair
and he hung there helpless.
He was slain by his enemies.
King David was inconsolable.

The pdf file contains score and parts.
The sound sample is an electronic preview.

The words of the choral original are:
When David heard that Absalom was slain
He went up into his chamber over the gate and wept,
and thus he said:
my son, my son, O Absalom my son,
would God I had died for thee!
