Omnes de Saba

SATB + SATB; Magnum opus musicum, Henricus, Munich, 1604
author of text
Isaiah 60: 6; Psalm 72: 10; Gradual and Offertory at Mass, the Epiphany of Our Lord

In his motet Omnes de Saba, Lassus combines the Epiphany texts of the Gradual and the Offertory. The regal grandeur of the opening speaks of the nobility of the earthly kings as they come to pay homage to their heavenly king. The triple iteration of ‘munera’ recalls the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
