Terra tremuit (‘The earth shook’) adopts a dramatic approach initially, softening to a fauxbourdon-like texture for ‘dum resurgeret in iudicio Deus’ (‘when God arose in judgment’). The final Alleluia occupies about a third of the piece, beginning lightly with upper voices before a crescendo to the end.
