Benigno Zerafa - Dixit Dominus, Mov. II

King David, Psalmist
Man, did anyone even know how to write bad music in the 18th century?  I had never heard of Benigno Zerafa, the composer of this delightful setting to Psalm 110, until very recently (those of you who are Maltese or with connections to Malta may be more familiar with him).  My loss . . . until now. Neither he nor his beautiful music deserve to be forgotten
