Dixit Dominus

author of text
Psalm 109 (110)

The Psalm Dixit Dominus is written for two equal SATB choirs and sets all seven verses of Psalm 110 (109) in lively antiphonal style, ending with a doxology which opens in brisk triple time (perhaps symbolizing the three persons of the Trinity) and broadening at the end into some substantial and sonorous eight-part writing.

Le psaume Dixit Dominus est écrit pour deux chœurs SATB identiques et reprend les sept versets du Psaume 110 (109) dans un style antiphonaire dynamique. Sa dernière partie est une doxologie qui s’ouvre sur une mesure rapide à trois temps (symbolisant peut-être la Trinité) et qui s’élargit, à la fin, sur une écriture à huit voix impressionnante et sonore.

Die Psalmvertonung Dixit Dominus wurde für zwei gleichstarke Chöre (SATB) geschrieben und arbeitet alle sieben Verse des 110. (109.) Psalms in einem lebhaften antiphonalen Stil ab. Sie schließt mit der Doxologie, die in einem forschen Dreiermetrum beginnt (vielleicht soll dieses Metrum die drei Personen der Dreifaltigkeit symbolisieren) und weitet sich gegen Ende zu einer substantiellen und klangvollen Achtstimmigkeit.
