Editor: Pothárn Imre (submitted 2020-11-11).   Score information: A4, 6 pages, 134 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transcribed from 1544 print. Original key (chiavi naturali) and note values. Altus notated in transposed violin clef. In the original print Quintus is notated in baritone clef, but its range is almost identical with the tenor so we notated it in the same clef as the Tenor.

Benedictus redemptor omnium,
qui saluti providens hominum
mundo dedit Sanctus Dominicum.

Magne pater Sancte Dominice,
mortis hora nos tecum suscipe,
et hic semper nos pie respice.
