General Information

Title: Psallite Domino
Composer: Charles H. Giffen

Number of voices: 3vv   Voicings: SSA or ATB
Genre: SacredMotet

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 2012

Description: Communion Antiphon and Psalm verses for Ascension. The Antiphon is for SSA (or, transposed, for ATBar) voices with the middle voice carrying the proper Gregorian chant. The Psalm verses are for two voices (SA or ABar). The work is dedicated to Susan C. Carroll in memory of her son Thomas (d. April 19, 2006). The revised version (2012-07-14) swaps the lower two parts in the "Alleluia" after the text of the Antiphon in the ATBar version, so as to achieve better voice placement. This, of course, puts the cantus firmus for that section in the lowest voice.
