Description
A 14th century motet (I think) for 3 voices. Thought it would be fun and a change of pace. BIG change of pace!

Lyrics
Omnipotens domine, populi pater unice trine, Qui mundum mundas unda pietatis inundas. Tu nos emunda fecunda pneumatis unda. Agnus paschalis, pax, virtus imperialis, Subvenias miseris, miserorum qui misereris, fauvel cum reprobis dampnans et erit bene nobis, Si sua sit secta deleta proculque reiecta.

Very interesting!
Hello Cantor:
Great voice work....Is this from the Christian or Hebrew
tradition?....Sounds very similar to Renaissance Sacred music of the
European Abbys and Monasterys....It was funny cause just last night I was
thinking that it would be great to start my next piece this way....Peace,

and now for something completely different!!!
which reminds me.... poor hymie had got sick - he'd had a transfusion and contracted 'aids'. sadie agreed to nurse him at home and, one day, the doctor came to visit. 'so sadie, how is the patient?' he asks ' how is his appetite?' 'doctor,' replies sadie 'he is doink okay. every mornink for breakfast he has chopped liver - on a matzo. every lunchtime, he has a bissel chopped herrink - also on a matzo. every afternoon i brink him egg and onion - also spread on matzo und, in der evenink, he has gefilta fish - spread on a matzo.'
'sadie' says the doctor 'dis is marvellous - he is eatink so vell, but tell me, vhy alvays you give him matzo?'
'doctor' she replies 'it is the only vay i can slide the food under the door'!!

as you implied at the end of your piece - oy!!!

and one more thing.... diem carpo, die fruor, diei obliviscor!!

wow
I don't feel qualified to offer any constructive commentary.
I just wanted to let you know that I stopped by, and am happy
that someone is studying (and capturing the study of) ancient
works like this.

The sigh/gasp at the end was a nice touch. It made me think
that one might actually hear one of those in monastery. Especially
after hearing the head monk say "you slipped out of the mode
on tu nos emunda, Brother Maynard...go back and do it again!"

Cantor said 4433 days ago (October 24th, 2005)
wow
GREAT comment! Actually, that sigh came after singing in such a compressed
falsetto--it can get tiring after a while, especially when there aren't a lot of
breaths! It sounded funny to me, especially with the echo, that I decided to leave
it.

HIGH fives!
Wow, this is indeed wonderfully sung... comes as close to perfection as
the ancient "Castle Motet with canons", by Elvis Castratto. Seriously,
though, very nicely recorded and sung, appropriate reverb to give it that
cathedral sound, made me want to hymn along. Loved the ending, made
me smirk!
ttfn,
Drakonis

HIGH fives!
Thanks muchly! It's a nice change of pace to sing this sort of thing. I used to do
much more of it in college. now it's just a matter of finding people that actually
want to sing this stuff!

This is fantastic!
I was in an Early Music Ensemble for a couple of years and we sang music
similar to this (women and men) and I really enjoyed it....So listening to
this was a wonderful return to that for a few minutes.

Very well done! And so great to hear music like this posted to MacJams!

Thank you!
