Euge caeli porta

4vv SAAT; Gyffard Partbooks
author of text
verse two of Ave, praeclara maris stella, a Sequence for Lady Mass on Sundays

Dating from the same period as Ave, rosa sine spinis is the little Euge caeli porta, a setting of the second verse of Ave, praeclara maris stella—a Sequence to be sung during Lady Mass on Sundays. Found in the Gyffard Partbooks, it is a modest, four-part piece which contains a decorated version of the plainsong in its lowest voice.

Datant de la même période que l'Ave, rosa sine spinis, le petit Euge caeli porta met en musique le deuxième verset d’Ave, praeclara maris stella—une séquence chantée le dimanche pendant la messe de Notre-Dame. Figurant dans le Gyffard Partbooks, cette modeste pièce à quatre parties charrie en sa voix la plus grave une version ornée du plain-chant.

Aus derselben Zeit als Ave, rosa sine spinis stammt das kleine Werk Euge caeli porta, eine Vertonung der zweiten Strophe von Ave, praeclara maris stella—eine Sequenz für die sonntägliche Marienmesse. Sie findet sich in den Gyffard Partbooks und ist ein bescheidenes, vierstimmiges Stück, in dem eine verzierte Version des Cantus planus in der tiefsten Stimme erklingt.
