Jesu, dulcis memoria

composer
author of text

 
This brief eucharistic motet—technically not a motet but a polyphonic setting of the first verse of a hymn text—has long been a favourite, though since its publication in Pedrell’s complete edition of Victoria’s work early in the twentieth century the scholar von May has asserted that it is not in fact by Victoria. Despite its doubtful authorship it stands as a perfect little example of the art of Renaissance polyphony.
