SATB choir a cappella
Composed by Johannes Ockeghem (1410-1497). Liturgical Use: Marian Feasts. Text: Latin. Choral. Vocal score. Duration ca. 5 minutes. Published by Notre Dame Choir Editions (PE.NDC026).

Item Number: PE.NDC026

Language: Latin.

An exquisite setting of the Marian antiphon built around an elegantly paraphrase of the original plainsong in the alto voice. The unusually high tessitura mitigates to some degree the composer's characteristically dense polyphonic textures so that the piece unfolds with a limpid grace and a mood of quiet rapture.
