General Information

Title: O flos fragrans

Composer: Johannes Brassart

Number of voices: 3vv   Voicing: SAA
Genre: SacredMotet

Language: Latin
Instruments: Unknown

 Manuscript post 1445 in the Trent codices 87
Description: Transcribed from the Trent manuscripts tr87. The keys, notes' values, accidentals and colourings are as in the manuscript, the coloured group containing minimæ is in “proportio sesquialtera” (3 vs. 2), all the others are “hemiolæ”. The time signature is missing, the “tempus perfectum” has been assumed from the context: the perfect notes and rests have been dotted and ties have been used for the notes’ values that cannot be exactly represented. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves - the right downstemmed notes are longæ.- the unstemmed note with double length body is a maxima. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.

O flos fl(r)agrans iam vernalis,
Cuius ortus est regalis,
Virgo plena gratia,
Miserorum specialis
Advocatis(trix)que legalis,
Es tu dei filia.
Te supernorum regia
Laudant sanctorum agmina,
Pia virgo Maria.
Te laudantes hic in y(i)ma,
Reple gratia divina,
Necnon a tristitia
Serva nos et ad quieta
duc in ultima dieta,
Paradisi gaudia.
