Title: Rorate caeli
Composer: Christoph Dalitz
First published: 2013
Description: The piece is not based upon the gregorian introit for the fourth sunday of advent, but on the later (presumably 17c) antiphonal chant that gave the "Rorate Masses" their name.
Only the antiphon is set polyphoniclally, so that the piece can be quickly learned by every choir. The style is Renaissance counterpoint.
