Edition notes: Down a fourth for lower voices (as suggested by Gabrieli's use of high clefs). Various voice combinations might work: STTTB, ATTTB, STTBarB, ATTBarB, STBarBarB or ATBarBarB. 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 than this. I've chosen to go down a tone for SATTB. 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: Laudate Dominum Omnes Gentes a 5
Composer: Andrea Gabrieli
Lyricist:

Number of voices: 5vv   Voicing: SATTB
Genre: SacredMotet

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1565 in Sacrae cantiones quinque vocum, liber primus, no. 1

Description: An energetic setting of this text suitable for a wide range of liturgical contexts. This is the opening motet in the publication, suggesting that Gabrieli (or his publisher) accorded the motet some degree of prominence. Gabrieli sets both verses of Psalm 117 (116 in Vulgate numbering), with no Gloria Patri or other doxology on the end.

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.
