General Information

Title: Christus resurgens
Composer: Jean Richafort
Source of text: Romans 6:9-10; 4:25

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SSTB, SATB or AATB
Genre: SacredMotetAntiphon or Responsory for Easter

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1520 in Antico, Motetti novi libro tertio [Venice] (RISM 1520/2)
  2nd published: c.1519–1525 in Vienna, Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, MSS Mus.Hs. 18825/1–4 Mus [Brussels/Mechelen]

Description: The existence of least twenty sources of this Eastertide motet suggests it was popular in its day; its use as the basis of a parody mass by Adrian Willaert provides further evidence. The upper two parts have an identical ambitus, and could therefore be performed by a mixture of soprano and alto voices.
