Cum descendentibus
composer
author of text
Aestimatus sum, Responsory at Matins on Holy Saturday

Introduction
There are surprisingly few sacred works extant by Ginés de Morata, a Spaniard who was employed as mestre da capella at Vila Viçosa. Cum descendentibus is a partial setting of a Matins responsory on Holy Saturday, Aestimatus sum, and was designated as a motet for Good Friday (feria sexta in parasceve) in the Vila Viçosa sources. This very short piece, again for high voices, begins with a canonic imitation at the unison of a falling phrase illustrating the text ‘descendentibus in lacum’.
