Editor: Mick Swithinbank (submitted 2021-01-30).   Score information: A4, 20 pages, 155 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transposed up a tone. In the first of the three sections, the cantus firmus part has an O2 mensuration sign, implying that each long has the value of three breves. These are also the only two note values used in it. However, it is impossible to make the part harmonise consistently without tweaking the note values somewhat, as has been done here.

Description: Sources: Motetti de la Corona Libro Tertio, Petrucci, 1519 (and also BSB Mus.ms. 25). Text: Mark 16:14-20. The Alto part is low, or may be regarded as a high Tenor part. The Tenor part is a cantus firmus line, texted throughout in the same way as the other parts are in the third section (with Verse 20 from the passage from St Mark's Gospel). An attractive setting of this rarely used text (Ascension Year B Gospel in 3-year lectionary).

Recumbentibus undecim discipulis apparuit illis Jesus: et exprobravit incredulitatem eorum/illorum et duritiam cordis: quia his qui viderant eum resurrexisse a mortuis, non crediderunt.
Et dixit eis: Euntes in mundum universum, praedicate Evangelium omni creaturae.
Qui crediderit, et baptizatus fuerit, salvus erit: qui vero non crediderit, condemnabitur.
Signa autem eos qui crediderint, haec sequentur: in nomine meo daemonia ejicient: linguis loquentur novis:
serpentes tollent: et si mortiferum quid biberint, non eis nocebit: super aegros manus imponent, et bene habebunt.
Et Dominus quidem Jesus postquam locutus est eis, assumptus est in caelum, et sedet a dextris Dei.
Illi autem profecti praedicaverunt ubique, Domino cooperante, et sermonem confirmante, sequentibus signis. (Amen.) (Mark 16:14-20)
(Cantus firmus: as Verse 20 throughout.)
