motet a 5; subtitled Nella Elevatione di N. Signore; Libro primo de motetti (1620)
author of text
Hours of the Cross

 
This short but very moving motet was one of two on the same text published in 1620 in an anthology compiled by Giulio Cesare Bianchi, a cornett player who was then working in Milan, but had earlier studied composition under Monteverdi at Mantua. The text is found in devotional Books of Hours as part of the Hours of the Cross.

Ce motet concis mais très émouvant est l’un des deux réalisés sur ce texte publié en 1620 dans une anthologie réunie par Giulio Cesare Bianchi, un joueur de cornet à bouquin qui travaillait alors à Milan mais qui au début de sa carrière avait travaillé auprès de Monteverdi à Mantua. Ce texte figure dans le Livre des Heures, au sein des Heures sur la croix.

Diese kurze und doch sehr bewegende Motette wurde zusammen mit einer zweiten (mit demselben Text) im Jahre 1620 veröffentlicht. Die beiden Werke erschienen in einer Anthologie, die von Giulio Cesare Bianchi zusammengestellt worden war, ein Zink-Spieler, der sich zu jenem Zeitpunkt in Mailand aufhielt, jedoch zuvor bei Monteverdi in Mantua Komposition studiert hatte. Der Text stammt aus einem Stundenbuch und ist ein Teil der Stunden des heiligen Kreuzes.
