  • CPDL #32769:        (Finale 2004)
Editor: Willem Verkaik (submitted 2014-08-24).   Score information: A4, 9 pages, 191 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: MusicXML source file is in compressed .mxl format.

Error: there is a wrong note in bar 67, where tenor's first note should be a D. Although the text differs in many respects from the version set by Gombert, it is possible that 'serena mors' should read 'severa mors' and that 'priras' should read 'privas'. - Mick Swithinbank

Musae Jovis ter maximi,
Proles canora,plangite.
Ramos cypressus comprimat;
Judocus ille occidit,
Templis et decus vestris.

Serena mors, et improba,
Quae templa dulcibus sonis
Priras et aulas principis,
Nos quoque dico vulnere.
Josquini morte feris.
