Non Nobis

Non Nobis

Here is the version that is approved by the Church with all the repeats:

Non nobis Domine non nobis, Sed Nomini tuo da gloriam Sed nomini tuo da gloriam. And it keeps repeating until the director says stop.

Here is the version from the movie "Henry V" 1989) by Patrick Doyle:

Non nobis domine, domine, Non nobis domine, Sed nomine, sed nomine tuo da gloriam. This one has four parts and goes on a little longer repeating.

The correct Latin words are those used in the first "Non Nobis", which was composed by Byrd during the Renaissance period of music (1500-1600). This piece (the Byrd "Non Nobis") was also used in a "Henry V" movie - the 1930's(?) version with Laurence Olivier as Henry. One wonders if this one might have been composed for the Shakespeare play when it was first performed?
