Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

Super flumina Babylonis
illic sedimus et flevimus,
cum recordaremur Sion.
In salicibus in medio ejus
suspendimus organa nostra.

By the waters of Babylon,
there we sat and wept,
when we remembered Zion.
On the willow trees in their midst
we hung up our harps.

Psalm 137:1-2
