Title: Taedet animam meam
Composer: José de Torres
Source of text: Job 10:1-7.
Description: An 8 part motet. The text has been edited to conform with the Vulgate, with changes shown in square brackets. The source is a 19th century musicologist, Eslava, notorious for adapting old works to contemporary taste. He describes the accompaniment as "Violón y contrabajo", but that may have been just his suggestion for performance. The original source probably included a figured bass.
