Proch dolor
Josquin Desprez (1450/55-1521)

Proch dolor, amissum terris Germanica turba
Magnanimum regem defleat
ille jacet
Atque ruit subito preclara Cesaris astrum
Vulnere non maior nunc dolor esse potest,
Fortia stelliferi pandantur lumina caeli
Excipiat magnum calico turma virum.

Pie Jesu Domine, dona ei requiem.

Ah grief, may the German throng bear away
That great-hearted king now lost. He lies dead
And suddenly that bright star of the Caesars is fallen.
Now can there be no greater grief than this wound.
Let the mighty lights of the starry sky unfold.
Let the Heavenly host receive that great man.

Sweet Lord Jesus, grant him rest.

O smart! Het Duitse volk treurt om hun groothartige koning,
die aan het land ontrukt is.
Dood ligt hij daar, en de heldere ster van de keizer is neergestort.
Niets kan nu meer pijn doen dan deze wonde.
De sterke deuren van de sterrenhemel mogen zich openen.
Moge de grote man door de hemelscharen ontvangen worden.

Zachtmoedige Heer Jezus, geef hem de rust.
