Post dies octo
After eight days, the euphoria of Easter has passed and the disciples are huddled together in a room with the doors closed, fearing for their safety. Guerrero chooses to use a narrow compass for the voices, perhaps to mirror the clandestine nature of the surroundings. Christ appears and pronounces his benediction and asks the doubtful Thomas to touch his wounds so that his faith can be truly grounded. Guerrero points many of the salient phrases with homophony but indulges in some writing which sounds more reminiscent of the approaching style of Monteverdi (at the end of the first section, for example). However, the intimate nature of this narrative is preserved throughout, even in the concluding Alleluias.
