Monteverdi here provides a setting for solo tenor and two violins of the text of the Office Hymn for Vespers of the Common for Several Martyrs, though he indicates that the same setting can be used for any hymn in the same metre.

from notes by John Whenham © 2005

Voici une mise en musique, pour ténor solo et deux violons, de l’hymne pour les vêpres du Commun pour plusieurs Martyrs qui, nous précise Monteverdi, peut servir à n’importe quelle hymne dans le même mètre.

Hier setzt Monteverdi den Text des Hymnus des Vesperoffiziums des Commune mehrerer Märtyrer für Solotenor und zwei Violinen, wobei er jedoch angibt, dass dieselbe Vertonung auch für alle anderen Hymnen desselben Metrums verwendet werden könne.
