This motet for soprano, tenor and organ without pedal ranks among the little, yet particularly valuable pieces of Rota for singing voice and organ. Originally, 'Tota pulchra es' ('You are completely beautiful') is a song of Mary from the 4th century which praises the immaculacy of the Virgin Mary. In Rota's version, the Latin verses describe the beauty of the beloved. At the end, the dialogue between soprano and tenor blends into a melancholy duet of tonal beauty.
