Mihi autem nimis sets the antiphon of the Introit for the Feast of Apostles in a quiet, devotional way. Many of these pieces in the 1575 collection could well have been used in domestic settings as well as for the liturgy. Latin remained the usual language of law, diplomacy and education and would have been perfectly acceptable in an institution like the Chapel Royal or as part of a domestic ‘spiritual entertainment’.

from notes by Andrew Carwood © 2005

Mihi autem nimis est une mise en musique paisible et dévotionnelle de l’antienne de l’Introït pour la fête des Apôtres. Nombre des pièces du recueil de 1575 ont fort bien pu être utilisées dans des mises en musique à usage soit privé soit liturgique. Le latin, qui demeurait la langue usuelle du droit, de la diplomatie et de l’enseignement, eût été parfaitement acceptable dans une institution comme la Chapel Royal ou dans le cadre d’un «divertissement spirituel» privé.

Français: Hypérion

Mihi autem nimis ist eine ruhige, andächtige Antiphon des Introitus zum Fest der Apostel. Viele der Stücke aus der Sammlung von 1575 sind ebenso für den häuslichen als auch für den liturgischen Gebrauch denkbar. Das Lateinische blieb die Sprache des Gesetzes, der Diplomaten und der Bildung und wäre in einer Institution wie der Chapel Royal oder auch im Rahmen häuslicher „religiöser Zerstreuung“ durchaus denkbar gewesen.
