Te decet hymnus
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The five-voice motet Te decet hymnus, published in Nuremberg in 1600, a setting of the first two verses of Psalm 64 which are sung as the Introit of the Office of the Dead, is faithful to the technique of imitation limited to the entries of the different voices. In the central part homophony makes its appearance with pairs of voices (‘et tibi reddetur’, ‘Exaudi orationem’, ‘ad te omnis’) before a conclusion in freer counterpoint.
