Original text and translations
Original text and translations may be found at Homo quidam. The troped variant used in this piece is as follows:
Homo quidam fecit cenam magnam,
et misit servum suum hora cenae
dicere invitatis ut venirent
quia parata sunt
omnibus firmiter credentibus
cibaria vite conferencia
angelica celicaque gaudia
venite, comedite panem meum,
et bibite vinum quod miscui vobis.
Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto.
