General Information

Title: Benedicite Dominum
Composer: Nicolas Merques

Number of voices: 3vv   Voicing: SSA
Genre: SacredAntiphon

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published:

Description: “Antiphona in festo omnium sanctorum ad laudes” transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr92. The notes’ values are as in the manuscript. The Contra has been derived from the Superius following the Tenor’s prescription “faulx bourdon” (a fourth below). The time signature is missing in all the voices, the “tempus perfectum” has been assumed from the context. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves, the right downstemmed notes are longæ. The “musica ficta” suggestions are in the MIDI and the MusicXML files.
