Title: Et nunc-Spes mea
Manuscript 1560 in Royal Danish Library MS KB 1872
Description: Transcribed from the Royal Danish Library manuscript KB 1872. The notes' values and the accidentals are as in the manuscript. The underlay of the text of the “Symboli explanatio” is editorial. As the manuscript was intended for the use of the Royal Danish Band, this setting can also be played on loud wind instruments. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves – the right downstemmed note is a longa. The “musica ficta” suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.
Original text and translations
Illustrissimi ac Serenissimi Joannis Friderici principis Saxonis
Spes mea in Deo
Et nunc ad Dominum directa est mea voluntas
Fortiaque meæ scuta salutis habet
Pectora concipiunt nova gaudia mea per ipsum
Spes rata in ipsius nomine mea manet.
(Discantus, Altus, Vagans, Bassus
