John 13: 6-9; Antiphon at the Service of the Washing of the Feet on Maundy Thursday

 
Domine, tu mihi lavas pedes? Is a setting of the Antiphon for the ceremony of the washing of the feet in Holy Week, taken from John’s account of the Last Supper. Its structure is much more complex, and its message more cryptic, than the other motets on this recording. The rich and prolonged contrapuntal setting of the dialogue between Peter and Jesus contrasts with the brief homophonic interludes from the biblical narrator. Jesus’ response to Peter’s initial question begins with the alto alone, while the three upper voices relate Peter’s restrained and reverent response.

Domine, tu mihi lavas pedes? met en musique l’antienne pour la cérémonie du lavement des pieds dans la Semaine Sainte, selon le récit de la Dernière Cène dans l’évangile selon saint Jean. Sa structure est beaucoup plus complexe et son message plus sibyllin que les autres motets de cet enregistrement. La mise en musique contrapuntique riche et prolongée du dialogue entre Pierre et Jésus contraste avec les courts interludes homophoniques du narrateur biblique. La réponse de Jésus à la question initiale de Pierre commence par l’alto seul, alors que les trois voix supérieures racontent la réponse mesurée et déférente de Pierre.

Die Motette Domine, tu mihi lavas pedes? Verwendet die Antiphon für die Zeremonie der Fußwaschung in der Karwoche aus der Abendmahlserzählung des Johannes. Sie ist weitaus komplexer aufgebaut und schwieriger zu deuten als die übrigen hier aufgenommenen Motetten. Das breit und in reicher Polyphonie ausgesponnene Gespräch zwischen Petrus und Jesus kontrastiert zu den kurzen homophonen Zwischenspielen des biblischen Erzählers. Die Antwort Jesu auf die Frage des Petrus hebt im Alt allein an, während die zurückhaltende, ehrfürchtige Antwort des Petrus in den drei Oberstimmen erklingt.

Deutsch: Friedrich Sprondel

A antífona Domine, tu mihi lavas pedes?, integrada no cerimonial de lava-pés da Semana Santa, com base nos relatos de João sobre a Última Ceia, apresenta uma mensagem mais críptica e uma estrutura mais complexa que os exemplos anteriores. Aqui, ressalta o contraste entre a brevidade homofónica da intervenção do narrador e a delongada riqueza contrapontística do diálogo entre Jesus e Pedro, com particular destaque para o extático início da intervenção de Cristo a cargo da solitária voz de alto e para o carácter contido e quase reverente implícito na redução da textura para três vozes agudas na resposta de Pedro.
