Gyffard arrangement (c.1575)

Editor: Simon Biazeck (submitted 2023-09-08).   Score information: A4, 7 pages, 140 kB   Copyright: CPDL

Editor: Pothárn Imre (submitted 2023-02-23).   Score information: A4, 4 pages, 111 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transcribed from the Gryffard partbooks. Original key and note values. The section "sicut in coelo et in terra, panem nostrum quotidianum" differs from the Susato print used in #55434.
Since this source does not contain the 'Ave Maria', which is not even by Wilder, this edition contains only Wilder's 'Pater noster'.

First published: 1554 in Ecclesiasticarum cantionum quatuor vocum, liber 4 (Tielman Susato, Antwerp) – paired with 'Ave Maria', no. 14
    Manuscript 1572 (c. 1575) in British Library, Add. MS 17802-5 (Gyffard Partbooks) – 'Pater noster' only, no. 6
Description: This motet first appeared in a collection by Tielman Susato, where it was paired with Adrian Willaert's setting of Ave Maria (originally published in 1539). The arrangement appearing later, in the Gyffard Partbooks is substantially different and more likely to be Wilder's original conception.
