Non nobis, Domine - Patrick Doyle



When I was a Mormon missionary on Temple Square, I discovered this song.  Almost every morning, (I am sure to my various companion's annoyance), I would listen to this while getting ready for the day.  Honestly, I find this an incredibly moving piece of music.  And, I am a sucker for great tenor lines and this song has it in spades.  Listen to it once and then watch this below.  I think Kenneth Branagh is a master of Shakespeare and this, with the music at the end makes this an almost perfect moment on screen.

Non nobis, Domine is from Psalms 115:1 "Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake." (King James Version)
