O rex gloriae  [7'21]

O rex gloriae was first published in the same volume of six-part motets as In illo tempore. The first part of the motet is a setting of the Magnificat antiphon for the Second Vespers of the Feast of the Ascension; part two is the Second Matins Responsory of the same Feast. Points of imitation closely follow the plainsong model in a work of rich texture.

from notes by John O'Donnell © 1997

La première partie d’O rex gloriae—pièce publiée pour la première fois dans le même volume de motets à six parties qu’In illo tempore—est une mise en musique de l’antienne du Magnificat pour les Secondes vêpres de la fête de l’Ascension; la seconde partie est le répons des Secondes matines de la même fête. Les points d’imitation suivent étroitement le modèle du plain-chant, dans une œuvre à la texture riche.

Français: Hypérion

O rex gloriae erschien erstmals als Teil der Ausgabe der sechsstimmigen Motetten, in der auch In illo tempore aufgeführt war. Der erste Teil der Motette ist eine Vertonung der Magnificat-Antiphon der zweiten Himmelfahrts-Vesper. Teil zwei ist das zweite Matutin-Responsorium des gleichen Festes. Die Imitationsabschnitte lehnen sich in diesem vielschichtig aufgebauten Werk eng an ihre Choral-Vorlage an.
