Maurice Durufle based this famous motet on an ancient plainchant melody. This new adaptation makes the motet more accessible by an intelligent redistribution of parts: in its opening and closing sections, the first tenor line is reassigned to the altos, and the alto line is given to the tacet sopranos. All of Durufle's sumptuous harmonies are retained. For the first time, a piano reduction for rehearsal is included. In the brand-new unison version, the piano provides rich accompaniment; this arrangement is especially suitable for treble choirs, but is equally effective when sung by male or mixed choirs.

    This is an arrangement of the original piece by Durufle. Sheet Music Plus could do a better job indicating that this is an arrangement of the original! It is great to have this beautiful piece in 4 parts with no divisi, but I wish it was marked clearly when I...

    purchased it for our choir. This version loses much of the beauty of the original and should be used only if your choir would be challenged by the divisi.

    This edition has ACCOMPANIMENT which is perfect for those choirs which do not do well when singing a cappella OR do not have sufficient members to supply all the voice parts. The organ fills in the blanks! We used this on Holy Thursday - the Children's Choir led in with...

    a full verse one in Gregorian chant, and the adults followed. Beautiful!
