Spiritus Domini

composer

author of text
Magnificat Antiphon, Whit Sunday, adapted; after Acts 2: 3-4

 
Spiritus Domini is unusual among the motets of Vaet, and indeed those of his contemporaries, by being structured around a cantus firmus in long notes. The subject of the motet is the Pentecost theme of the Holy Spirit going out into the world, and perhaps this image suggested the idea of a sacred chant surrounded by the more worldly elements of five other voice parts composed by Vaet.

Articulé autour d’un cantus firmus en longues, Spiritus Domini se démarque des motets de Vaet et de ses contemporains. Il a pour sujet un thème propre à la Pentecôte, la venue de l’Esprit saint dans le monde, une image qui a pu inspirer à Vaet l’idée d’un plain-chant sacré entouré par les éléments davantage temporels de cinq autres parties vocales.

Français: Hypérion

Spiritus Domini ist ein Sonderfall unter den Motetten Vaets und auch der seiner Zeitgenossen, da sie um einen Cantus firmus in langen Noten herum konstruiert ist. Die Motette ist der Ausschüttung des Heiligen Geistes zu Pfingsten gewidmet und möglicherweise gab dieses Bild auch den Anstoß zu der Vorstellung von einem geistlichen Choral, der von Elementen wie fünf weiteren, weltlichen und von Vaet komponierten Singstimmen begleitet wird.
