Deliver me from mine enemies

6vv; AATTBarB

Psalm 59: 1-2; 60: 11

Deliver me from mine enemies and Holy Lord God Almighty are definitely influenced by the Flemish style from the Continent. They are full throughout and the text-setting is efficient although with no hint of the Edwardine style where homophony is the norm. Both pieces rely heavily on close imitation, especially Deliver me from mine enemies which is based on a canon between the two highest voices.

from notes by Andrew Carwood © 2011

Deliver me from mine enemies et Holy Lord God Almighty sont des pages résolument influencées par le style flamand venu du continent. Elles sont «full» de bout en bout et leur mise en musique du texte est brillante, bien que dénuée de toute allusion au style édouardien, où l’homophonie est la norme. Toutes deux reposent sur l’imitation serrée, surtout Deliver me from mine enemies, fondée sur un canon entre les deux voix les plus aiguës.

Français: Hypérion

Die beiden Werke Deliver me from mine enemies und Holy Lord God Almighty sind eindeutig vom flämischen Stil des Kontinents beeinflusst. Sie sind durchgängig vollstimmig gehalten und die Textvertonung ist wirkungsvoll, obwohl der Eduardinische Stil, bei dem Homophonie die Norm ist, sich hier gar nicht abzeichnet. Beide Stücke machen sehr viel Gebrauch von enger Imitation, besonders Deliver me from mine enemies, dem ein Kanon zwischen den beiden obersten Stimmen zugrunde liegt.
