A lovely little piece, which has become a favourite.

Available separately or in 'Three motets for four voices'.

SATTB Scoring legend Respond ISMN M-2056-1073-9
One of several pieces from Donato's retrospective collection of 1599 which we are publishing for the International Academy of Sacred Music in Venice. This is a setting of the Respond with the Venetian verse 'Peccavimus cum patribus' sung on the first Sunday of Lent.
Gabrieli, Andrea, Exaudi Deus orationem mean EMP0797 £3.50

An unusual piece, setting the first 6 verses of Psalm 54, which seems to be set only as the Introit of the Wednesday in the 4th week of Lent. The piece bears comparison with Gabrieli's wonderful Penitential Psalms, with which it shares some remarkable word-painting and the only Latin setting I know of 'O for the wings of a dove.'
