part of a Hymn for the Feast of the Visitation

 
The motet Cuius sacrata viscera is just twenty-five breves long, but is a beautifully shaped miniature. The text is a segment of a longer poem, used liturgically as a hymn for the feast of the Visitation (2 July). Obrecht set this text twice, the other setting being for three voices.

Le motet Cuius sacrata viscera ne comporte que vingt-cinq brèves, mais c’est une miniature d’une forme magnifique. Le texte est un segment d’un poème plus long, utilisé dans la liturgie comme un hymne pour la fête de la Visitation (2 juillet). Obrecht mit deux fois ce texte en musique, l’autre version étant à trois voix.

Die Motette Cuius sacrata viscera ist nur 25 Breven lang, doch handelt es sich hierbei um eine wunderschön gestaltete Miniatur. Der Text ist ein Abschnitt aus einer längeren Dichtung, die liturgisch als Hymnus für das Fest Mariä Heimsuchung (2. Juli) verwendet wurde. Obrecht vertonte diesen Text zweimal—das andere Werk ist dreistimmig angelegt.
