    Manuscript 1560 in Royal Danish Library MS KB 1872
Description: Transcribed from the Royal Danish Library manuscript KB 1872. The time signatures and the notes' values are as in the manuscript, the perfect notes and rests have been dotted and ties hav been used for the notes' values that cannot be exactly represented. The text underlay is editorial. As the manuscript was intended for the use of the Royal Danish Band, the voices without text should be played on loud wind instruments. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are semibreves. The “musica ficta” suggestions and the “resolutio” of the Tenor are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.

Surge, illuminare Jerusalem

Tunc videbis et afflues
et mirabitur et dilatabitur cor tuum
quando conversa fuerit ad te multitudo maris
fortitudo gentium venerit tibi
