Adoramus te, Christe

Libro primo de motetti (1620)
author of text

Like ‘Domine, ne in furore tuo’, this exquisite six-voice motet was one of Monteverdi’s contributions to Bianchi’s first book of motets of 1620. Its text appears to be a variant of ‘Christe, adoramus te’, set for five voices in the same book (and recorded on volume 3 of this series). ‘Christe, adoramus te’ appears as part of the Hours of the Cross in devotional Books of Hours. The source of this variant text is as yet untraced.

Comme «Domine, ne in furore tuo», cet exquis motet à six voix fut l’une des contributions monteverdiennes au premier livre de motets de Bianchi (1620). Son texte paraît être une variante de «Christe, adoramus te», à cinq voix, qui figure dans le même livre (et est enregistré sur le volume 3 de cette série). «Christe, adoramus te» appartient, semble-t-il, aux heures de la Croix dans les Livres d’heures dévotionnels. Mais la source de cette variante est, à ce jour, inconnue.

Ebenso wie „Domine, ne in furore tuo“, war auch diese exquisite Motette ein Beitrag Monteverdis für Bianchis ersten Band von Motetten von 1620. Der Text scheint eine Variante des „Christe, adoramus te“ zu sein, das für fünf Stimmen gesetzt und im selben Buch erschienen ist (und auf der 3. CD dieser Reihe vorliegt). „Christe, adoramus te“ erscheint in einem Stundenbuch als Teil der Stunden des heiligen Kreuzes. Die Quelle dieses variierten Texts ist bisher noch unbekannt.
