Transcription by Guido Menestrina. Gregorian sequentia from the 13th century, Attributed to Albert the Great, but is apparently the work of another German Dominican called Peregrinus of Cologne, also known as William of Cologne.The text begins with a joyous invitation to celebrate the Ascension in song: "Be glad, all ye people, and sing our festive songs, for it is the triumph of Christ! He returns to heaven, leading thither the trophies he has won; and as he ascends, the jubilant sound of the trumpet is heard." 7 is the main rhythmic pattern of the sequence, starting from the incipit of Psalm 46 ("O-mnes gen-tes, plau-di-te"), but then the poet freeealy weaves among different schemes, from 4 to 8 syllables, and the composer moves it forth to rhythms which would be nowadays considered 4/4 to 11/8.Follow the videoscore on youtube:
