General Information

Title: Cantate Domino Canticum Novum a 5
Composer: Andrea Gabrieli
Lyricist:

Number of voices: 5vv   Voicing: SATTB
Genre: SacredMotetPsalm

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

Published: 1565 in Andreae Gabrielis Sacrae Cantiones […], Liber Primus, published Antonio Gardano, Venice. See the main CPDL page for this publication for more commentary and links to the other motets in the volume.

Description: A robust, fairly paratactic setting of the first four verses of psalm 96, divided in two parts (two verses each) but not excessively long. Gabrieli stresses the last clause with prominent imitation points on 'terribilis' ("he is to be feared").

As suggested on the 1565 title page, instrumental support or substitution is optional but worth considering.
