SATTB choir a cappella
Composed by Adrian Willaert (1490-1562). Liturgical Use: Good Friday: Veneration of the Cross. Text: Latin. Choral. Vocal Score. Duration ca. 7 minutes. Notre Dame Choir Editions #NDC039. Published by Notre Dame Choir Editions (PE.NDC039).

Item Number: PE.NDC039


Conceived on the broadest scale, this motet paraphrases in succession two liturgical chants traditionally sung during the Veneration of the Cross on Good Friday. Each section of the motet leisurely unfolds in a series of overlapping polyphonic arches that build to and ebb from a climactic moment.

Winner - 2002 MPA Paul Revere Award, 3rd Prize.
