Caesaris auspiciis

author of text

p>The funeral motet Caesaris auspiciis does not give a name, but the record of the unknown general’s military service and the closeness to the Imperial circle that he must have had suggest that it was written for Philippe de Croy, Duke of Arschot and Governor of Hainault, who died in 1549.

from notes by Martin Ham © 2006

Caesaris auspiciis ne mentionne aucun nom, mais les états de service de ce général anonyme et l’étroitesse de ses liens avec le cercle impérial plaident en faveur de Philippe de Croy, duc d’Arschot et gouverneur du Hainault, mort en 1549.

Français: Hypérion

Caesaris auspiciis führt keinen Namen an. Aber die Auflistung der militärischen Dienste des unbekannten Generals und die Nähe zu den Kreisen um den Kaiser legen die Vermutung nahe, dass das Werk für den 1549 verstorbenen Philippe, Herzog von Croy und Arschot und Gouverneur von Hainault, komponiert wurde.
