Description: The existence of least twenty sources of this Eastertide motet suggests it was popular in its day; its use as the basis of a parody mass by Adrian Willaert provides further evidence. The upper two parts have an identical ambitus, and could therefore be performed by a mixture of soprano and alto voices.
