First published: 1855 in Lira sacro-hispana (ed. Hilarión Eslava), Volume 5, no. 4
Description: An 8 part motet. The text has been edited to conform with the Vulgate, with changes shown in square brackets. The source is a 19th century musicologist, Eslava, notorious for adapting old works to contemporary taste. He describes the accompaniment as "Violón y contrabajo", but that may have been just his suggestion for performance. The original source probably included a figured bass.
