Medieval[ edit ] As part of Psalm In exitu Israel it was recited liturgically as part of the Paschal vigil, the celebrants kneeling in a gesture of self-abasement when this verse was reached. Although the two passages are not heard consecutively, they are linked as they both set the text phrase non est qui consoletur "there is none to console [her]" , which was presumably the text to which the canon was originally sung. One factor in its popularity was undoubtedly its text, a responsory from the Roman Breviary and Sarum Breviary which was sung during the weeks before Advent. It laments the desolation of the Holy City in language derived from Jeremiah : Aspice Domine, quia facta est desolata civitas plena divitiis, sedet in tristitia domina gentium: non est qui consoletur eam, nisi tu Deus noster 2 Plorans ploravit in nocte, et lacrimae eius in maxillis eius. Non est qui consoletur eam, nisi tu Deus noster. Behold, Lord, for the city once full of riches is laid waste, she who ruled the peoples sits in sadness: there is none to console her but thou, our God.

By the time the 3rd line is added, the volume should be close to forte, but as the canon continues, it can eventually fade away. Mozart and Beethoven greatly admired this canon. Our Lord sat close to them! He was near them! The Second Person of the Blessed Trinity touched them, and was friendly toward them!
Truly, the people who can hurt us the most—and betray us the most—are those whom we have loved. If you examine the part books, you will notice a marvelous aesthetic desire to avoid the same capital letter—for the sake of beauty. This was not the sparkling of a heavenly body, for it spun round on itself in a mad whirl, when suddenly a clamor was heard from all the people. The sun, whirling, seemed to loosen itself from the firmament and advance threateningly upon the earth as if to crush us with its huge fiery weight.
The sensation during those moments was terrible.
