Editor: Pothárn Imre (submitted 2018-02-10).   Score information: A4, 2 pages, 65 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transcribed from 1585 print. Original note values.
(As noted below, the original print has "praenuntiavi" instead of "pronuntiavi". Since, however, the Vulgate version of Psalm 118 has "pronuntiavi" and the official Catholic Graduale also has "pronuntiavi", our edition has adopted this reading. The original also has juditia instead of judicia. This is just a difference of spelling, because in the German pronunciation of Latin juditia and judicia sound the same unlike in the Italian pronunciation of Latin. This piece was published in Germany by German printers.)
