Title: Redemisti nos
Composer: Nicolas Merques
Description: “Antiphona in festo omnium sanctorum ad laudes” transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr92. The notes’ values and the accidentals are as in the manuscript, the double accidental in the Contra means that the B can be sung either flat or natural. The time signature is missing in all the voices, the “tempus perfectum” has been assumed from the context, a perfect brevis has been dotted. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves. The “musica ficta” suggestions are in the MIDI and the MusicXML files.
Original text and translations
Redemisti nos Domine Deus in sanguine tuo
ex omni tribu et lingua et populo et natione
et fecisti nos Deo (nostro) regnum.
