O quam gloriosum

composer
4vv SATB; from Motecta (1572)
author of text
Magnificat Antiphon at Second Vespers on the Feast of All Saints

 
O quam gloriosum, a motet for All Saints, was written during Victoria’s time in Rome, when he was organist at the Aragonese church, Santa Maria di Monserrato. Famed for its verve and drive, this popular motet’s unrelenting energy pauses only briefly at ‘amicti stolis albis’ as the righteous are clothed for heaven.
