I think the description is not clear: "Description: Prelude to the Mass from Easter Sunday to Pentecost. The Psalm excerpt is the first verse of Psalm 117. "

The text of the motet is from Ezechiel 47 and the psalm antiphon is psalm 117 vs 1 (vulgate) = psalm 118:1 K.spijker 13:14, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

That is true, except that I'm not sure this would be called a motet. It's a polyphonic setting of a liturgical item, the Vidi aquam, which includes an antiphon and a portion of a Psalm, used as an introduction to the Mass for part of the year, replacing the Asperges me. I'll revise the description. John Hetland 07:48, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, John; that much detail would be useful on the text page as well! This page should be disambiguated to Vidi aquam I (Manuel Cardoso), if I've got the two straight. Richard Mix 08:34, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
