Nisi Dominus
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Nisi Dominus sets the six verses of Psalm 127 (126) for double choir (a high choir of SSAT and an SATB choir) and contains much excellent antiphonal writing with a good deal of rhythmic variety, from the short bursts of triple time to the stately opening of the second half at the words ‘Beatus vir’. Contrasts of choral registration between the higher and lower choirs, together with sections for reduced voices, are skilfully used by Victoria to provide variety and again he uses triple time in the ‘Gloria Patri’ to set off the expansive final section in duple time.
