O vos omnes

1599; re-published in the 1622 Cantiones Sacrae; SATTB
author of text
Responsory at Matins on Holy Saturday

The desolation of Holy Week is convincingly painted in O vos omnes, although the opening is deliberately understated so that the sorrowful harmonies of the second half of the motet can appear to dominate.

from notes by Jeremy Summerly © 2008

La désolation de la Semaine sainte est brossée de manière convaincante dans O vos omnes, même si l’ouverture est délibérément discrète pour que les harmonies affligées de la seconde moitié du motet puissent sembler dominer.

Français: Hypérion

In O vos omnes wird die Trostlosigkeit der Karwoche überzeugend gezeichnet, obwohl der Anfang bewusst dezent gehalten ist, damit die kummervollen Harmonien der zweiten Hälfte der Motette dominieren können.
