Clemens rector (A Follow-Up)

Our readers might be interested in listening to a performance of the Clemens rector trope, which we discussed a fortnight ago, by the Spanish group Schola Antiqua. And remember that the musical notation for the trope can be downloaded by clicking on the image on the left in the original post.

    1. Gloria in excelsis Deo. Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis. Laudamus te. Benedicimus te. Adoramus te. Glorificamus te. Gratias agimus tibi propter magnam gloriam tuam, Domine Deus, Rex coelestis, Deus Pater omnipotens.
      Domine Fili unigenite, Jesu Christe. Spiritus et alme orphanorum Paraclite. Domine Deus, Agnus Dei, Filius Patris, Primogenitus Mariae Virginis Matris. Qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis. Qui tollis peccata mundi, suscipe deprecationem nostram, ad Mariae gloriam. Qui sedes ad dexteram Patris, miserere nobis. Quoniam tu solus Sanctus, Mariam sanctificans. Tu solus Dominus, Mariam gubernans. Tu solus Altissimus, Maria coronans, Jesu Christe, cum Sancto Spiritu in gloria Dei Patris. Amen.

      I hope to have a post up about the Marian Gloria in the coming weeks, with the musical notation too.

    1. Brilliant, thank you!

      It’s a great pity that although good editions of the Mass propers (Graduale triplex, Liber gradualis, Graduale novum) and even the Office antiphons (Antiphonae et responsoria from Edizioni Melosantiqua) with adiastematic neums have been published or are being worked on, there seem to be no plans to publish an edition of the Ordinary chants of the Mass with these neumes.


      1. To the extent of my knowledge, Kyriale were notated with music only starting in the XIth century and with diastematic neumes.
