General Information

Title: Missa Spem in alium
Composer: Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SacredMass

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

Published: 1570 in Missarum liber tertius, 4–6vv, Rome.

Description: The Tallis motet is not the source for Palestrina's Missa Spem in alium, which was published almost contemporaneously in 1570. Palestrina's parody mass is based on a 4–part motet with a similar text, by Jacquet de Mantua, dating from 1539. The motet can be found here.
