Music by Jean Maillard, performed by The Marian Consort

Fratres mei elongaverunt se a me,

et noti mei quasi alieni, recesserunt a me.

Dereliquerunt me proximi mei,

et qui me noverunt quasi alieni,

recesserunt a me.

My brethren distance themselves from me,

and my acquaintances have departed from me like strangers.

My friends have forsaken me,

and they that knew me have departed from me like strangers.
