Adonai, Domine Jesu Christe was included in Gombert’s first book of five-part motets, published in Venice in 1539. It is a fine example of his close imitative style, the triadic outlines of several of the points of imitation contributing to a particularly euphonious texture.

Adonai, Domine Jesu Christe fut inclus dans le premier livre de motets à cinq parties de Gombert, publié à Venise en 1539. Il s’agit d’un bel exemple de son style en imitation serrée, où les trames en triade de plusieurs des points d’imitation contribuent à une structure particulièrement euphonique.

Français: Hypérion

Adonai, Domine Jesu Christe war Teil von Gomberts erstem Buch mit fünfstimmigen Motetten, das im Jahre 1539 in Venedig veröffentlicht wurde. Es ist ein hervorragendes Beispiel für seinen engen imitierenden Stil; die Dreiklangsgestaltung zahlreicher Imitationsabschnitte verleiht der Struktur einen besonderen Wohlklang.
