Usquequo, Domine
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Usquequo, Domine must rank as one of the most powerful penitential motet of the period. Scored for SSATTB it was eventually published alongside Requiem Masses. The surface of Usquequo, Domine is faultlessly spacious and sustained, the material not looking on paper – there are few dissonances or suspensions – as though it could bear the weight of these words. Yet it creates an unforgettable atmosphere, the simpler the more passionate, and nowhere more remarkable than at the first inversion chords on ‘dolorem in corde meo’.
