Offertory at Third Mass of Christmas

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Tui sunt caeli is the Offertory from the Third Mass of Christmas and was published in 1593. This five-part motet is written in a flowing fugal manner with periodic short homophonic interjections which contrast effectively with the prevailing polyphonic style and prepare the way for a satisfying end to the piece.
