- Edition notes: A semi-diplomatorical edition. The sections in chant not provided in the Ms. are included from Liber Usualis. As the Penultimate "Credendum est magis" was expurged in the Tridentine reform this edition gives an alternative text underlay of the ultimate verse "Scimus Christum surrexise" is provided for use in a liturgical context.
First published: c. 1600
Description: The second setting of the even verses from BSB Mus.ms.Mk. 1055. In this setting the polyphonic parts are largely in a Falsibordone style though the "agnus redemit oves" and "Credendum est magis" parts begin as a S-B duetto. The stantsas set polyphonicaly include the "Credendum est magis" stanza wihch was excluded from liturgical use in the Tridentine Liturgical reform and thus not included in Roman Misales and Breviers from the 1570 Missale Romanum onwards. The manuscript source does not include the odd verses to be sung in chant.
