General Information

Title: Rorate caeli
Composer: Christoph Dalitz

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB

Genre: SacredAntiphon

Language: Latin
Instruments: a cappella
Published: 2013

Description: The piece is not based upon the gregorian introit for the fourth sunday of advent, but on the later (presumably 17c) antiphon that gave the "Rorate Masses" their name.

Only the antiphon is set polyphoniclally, so that the piece is quickly learned by every choir. The style is Renaissance counterpoint.
