This setting of Psalm 34, v. 8-10, "O taste and see how good the Lord is," became quite celebrated almost 30 years after its first publication for a reason only tangentially related to its musical qualities. In 1584 a thunderstorm threatened the annual Corpus Christi procession in Munich. However, as Lassus led his choir in the singing of this motet, the sun suddenly emerged from behind the clouds. Every year thereafter, the composition was performed during the procession as fair weather insurance.

Winner - 2003 MPA Paul Revere Award, 2nd Prize.
