Editor: Alistair Kirk (submitted 2015-06-11).   Score information: A4, 4 pages, 105 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Down a fourth for lower voices (as suggested by Gabrieli's use of high clefs). Various voice combinations might work: SSTTB, AATTB, SSTBarB, AATBarB. However, the Lilypond source code is specially designed to be easy to transpose, change clefs, change music font size, change paper size etc, so users are encouraged to experiment. Corrections and constructive criticism welcomed.

Edition notes:Original source is in high clefs, so performance pitch was probably lower. With this score I've chosen to go down a tone for SSATB. However, the Lilypond source code is specially designed to be easy to transpose, change clefs, change music font size, change paper size etc, so users are encouraged to experiment. Corrections and constructive criticism welcomed.

General Information

Title: Sancta et Immaculata a 5 (see also 4vv setting)
Composer: Andrea Gabrieli
Lyricist:

Number of voices: 5vv   Voicing: SSATB
Genre: SacredMariaMotetResponsory vi at Matins of Christmas

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1565 in Sacrae cantiones quinque vocum, liber primus, no. 13

Description: A short, but melismatic and lyrical Marian motet suitable for all liturgical contexts associated with the Virgin Mary. As suggested on the 1565 title page, instrumental support or substitution is optional but worth considering. The source is in high clefs, so downward transposition for performance was likely.
