Editor: Alistair Kirk (submitted 2018-09-12).   Score information: A4, 5 pages   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transposed up from likely performance pitch (still down a tone from publication pitch) to be suitable for SATTB. The Lilypond source code is specially designed to be easy to transpose, change clefs, change music font size, change paper size etc, so users are encouraged to experiment: see my | easy guide here.

Edition notes: High clefs suggest an original performance pitch down a fifth from the published source for ATTTB but other voicings should work - ATTBB, ATBBB, STTTB, STTBB or STBBB etc. The Lilypond source code is specially designed to be easy to transpose, change clefs, change music font size, change paper size etc, so users are encouraged to experiment: see my | easy guide here.

Composer: Andrea Gabrieli
Lyricist:

Number of voices: 5vv   Voicings: SATTB or ATTTB

Description: A short, but charming Marian motet suitable for all liturgical contexts associated with the Virgin Mary. As suggested on the 1565 title page, instrumental support or substitution is optional but worth considering. The source is in high clefs, so downward transposition for performance was likely.
