Description: There is nothing by this title in Grove Music's work list for Palestrina. Several entries in WorldCat (not always accurate for classifications) list this as a motet, so for the moment, it is tagged as such. However, it could be a movement from a larger work, so it may at some point need to be either re-tagged, or moved to a page for a larger work.
