8pp.Scoring: Tenor (or baritone, or "semi-Canto"), 2 violas da gamba, continuo.The gambas are currently in treble and alto clef respectively; if you prefer parts in different clefs, please fill in the box.

This piece, which tells of the taking down of Christ's body from the cross and its laying in the tomb, has been sung mostly by counter-tenors, but Geist's first choice of voice was Tenore ò Bassetto - sounding an octave lower. He added "Semi-Canto" later. This version features the fine voice of Carlos Mena and the wonderful Ricercar Consort, long champions of this repertoire. It is something of a puzzle why Geist chose not to use the opening words of the piece as its title; our edition follows modern convention.
