General Information

Title: Dixit Dominus Petrus
Composer: Francisco Guerrero

Number of voices: 5vv   Voicing: AATBarB
Genre: SacredMotet

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1555

Description: Contains a canon at the unison between the two top parts.

Note by Mick Swithinbank: The title and opening words are ungrammatical, and should read 'Dixit Dominus Petro'. This is a paraphrase of 'Dixit Dominus ei' in John 21:19. Otherwise the text is more or less faithfully quoted from John 21:19-22, although in 'qui tradet ter', the last word would normally read 'te'. 'Ter' is not wholly impossible, given Peter's threefold denial, but does not appear in John's text.

Dixit Dominus Petro sequere me
conversus Petrus vidit illum discipulum
sequentem quem diligebat Iesus
qui et recubuit in caena supra pectus eius
et dixit Domine quis est qui tradet ter?
Hunc ergo cum vidisset Petrus,
dicit Iesu:
Domine hic autem quid?
dicit ei Iesus:
si eum volo manere
donec veniam quid ad te?
tu me sequere.
