Andrea Castelli (Villasola Cisano Bergamasco, 1876 - Bergamo, 1970)
Belonging to a family of farmers, first attended the college in Celana, where he studied the piano, and then the diocesan seminary. Ordained a priest in 1902, he was sent as assistant parish in Monte Marenzo. Knowing the propensity for the study of music, Bishop Don Castelli Guindani allowed to stay in Milan to follow the lessons of Luigi Mapelli and attend the Conservatory "Giuseppe Verdi" in Milan. Don Castelli so he could graduate in organ and composition.

Original in italian:

1. O Cristo Redentore
per noi dal ciel disceso,
di questa carne il peso
vestisti nel dolore:
su dura croce esanime
scontasti i nostri error.

[Rit.] Gesù, noi t'adoriamo
dalla croce pendente;
noi ti benediciamo
per le genti redente.

2. Perdona, o Dio d'amore,
dall'alto della croce:
preghiamo con la voce
degli umili, o Signore:
perdona a noi colpevoli
d'avere agito mal. (Rit.)

1. O Christ the Redeemer
for us to come down from heaven,
this meat weight
didst clothe in pain:
on tough cross lifeless
Accept our error.

[Rit.] Jesus, we adore you
from the cross pendant;
we bless you
for the people redeemed.

2. Forgive, O God of love,
from the cross:
Please with the voice
the humble, O Lord:
Forgive us guilty
to have acted badly. (Rit.)
