Description: A setting of four verses from the Palm Sunday hymn Gloria laus, but set as a polyphonic motet rather than a hymn. In the first verse, the top part is a low alto part, but in the rest of the work, the clef in the source changes from C3 to C1, so that sopranos must take over.

Gloria, laus et honor tibi sit,
rex Christe redemptor cui puerile decus prompsit osanna pium.

Israel es tu rex Davidis
et inclyta proles nomine qui in domini rex benedicte venis.

Laetus in excelsis te laudat caelitus omnis
et mortalis homo et cuncta creata simul.

Plebs hebrea tibi cum palmis obvia venit
cum prece voto hymnis assumus ecce tibi.
