Edition notes: Original key for ATTBarB. Warning - there is a typo in bar 24 - the ossia in the superius part should be prefaced with a G2 clef, not C1, as written. I'm hoping to change this when I'm a little more fluent in CPDL uploading - in the meantime please accept my apologies!

Sive vigilem, sive dormiam, sive edam aut bibam,
semper videor mihi audire sonum tubae
et voce angeli clamantis et dicentis:
Surgite mortui, et venite ad iudicium.
Vigilemus et oremus, quia nescimus
diem neque horam quando Dominus veniet.

Whether I keep watch or sleep, whether I eat or drink,
always I seem to hear the sound of the trumpet
and the voice of an angel calling out and saying:
Rise up, ye dead, and come to the judgement.
Let us watch and pray, for we do not know
the day nor the hour when the Lord will come.
