Description: A setting of the frequently set penitential psalm. Source: Psalmorum Selectorum Tomus tertius, Johannes Petreius, Nuremberg, 1542. An alternative (somewhat earlier) source, the first volume of Motetti del fiore, confirmed the editor's suspicions about an error in the rests in the main source.
