Angelus Domini (‘The angel of the Lord’) relates the story of the angelic vision to the women in the garden, contrasting the floated syncopation of ‘quem quaeritis’ (‘he whom you seek’) with a vigorous ‘surrexit’ (‘is risen’).

from notes by Stephen Rice © 2013

Angelus Domini («L’ange du Seigneur») raconte comment les femmes eurent une vision angélique dans le jardin, opposant à la syncope floue de «quem quaeritis» («celui que vous cherchez») un vigoureux «surrexit» («est ressuscité»).

Français: Hypérion

In Angelus Domini („Der Engel des Herrn“) wird die Geschichte der Erscheinung des Engels bei den Frauen im Garten erzählt, wobei die schwebende Synkopierung bei „quem quaeritis“ („den ihr sucht“) einem lebhaften „surrexit“ („ist auferstanden“) gegenübergestellt wird.
