Campanis cum cymbalis

composer
Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, MS c: 60
author of text

 
The bi-textual motet Campanis cum cymbalis / Honoremus Dominam is constructed on a two-voice ostinato apparently inspired by the text to imitate the tolling of bells. The work is sung by multiple voices singing in octaves, given the relative simplicity of the harmony on such a limited pes, and the incorporation of bells into the performance echoes the use of instruments heard in Judith Weir’s All the ends of the earth.
