Title: Audivi vocem de caelo (2.p. Et vox de throno)
Composer: Pierre de Manchicourt
Source of text: from Revelation 12:10, 14:2, 19:5–6
First published: 1554 in Phalèse, Cantionum sacrarum liber 5 (Pierre de Manchicourt), no. 10
2nd published: c.1560–70 in Universitätsbibliothek Kassel, 4° Ms. Mus. 38 (hand copied by Johannes Heugel, court composer for Philip of Hesse)
Description: Manchicourt has set the Quinta Pars to an recurring, ostinato-like cantus firmus (see text below) that alternates between pitches a fourth apart. The text of the cantus firmus was corrected in the 1560 reprint of Phalèse's 1554 volume (the verb was originally conjugated in the singular, ie. intercede).
