Viri Galilaei

author of text
Part 1: Acts 1: 11; Part 2: Psalm 46 (47): 5; 102 (103): 19

This setting of the Introit text from the Mass of the Ascension comes from Book 2 of Byrd’s monumental Gradualia (1607). It falls naturally into two contrasting halves, the first half radiating tranquillity and reassurance, the second half (beginning at the words ‘Omnes gentes’) of a more fanfare-like character.
