Title: Recordare Domine
Composer: Rogier Pathie
First published: c. 1548 in Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Munich. 2 Mus.pr. 156#7
Description: This canon appears in a collection of broadsheets now held at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich under the shelfmark 2 Mus.pr. 156. The page, printed by Salminger probably in the late 1540s, bears a dedication to the dowager queen Mary of Hungary and Bohemia, governor of the Netherlands, whom Pathie served as organist. It contains 3 canons; however, owing to part of the page having been torn off, only this one is fully legible. The music for one voice is printed, with indications of the points and pitches of the other entries.
Original text and translations
Recordare Domine testamenti tui et dic angelo percutienti: Cesset jam manus tua, ut non desoletur terra.
Remember, O Lord, your promise and say to the avenging angel: now hold back your hand, that the earth might not be laid waste.
