General Information

Title: Vide Domine
Composer: Jan Dismas Zelenka

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genres: Secular & SacredCanon

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1722
/28

Description: First published in 1722 as verse 14—Versetto circolare, "Docebo iniquos vias tuas: et impii ad te convertentur"—of the Miserere in D minor (ZWV 56). This setting is the composer's own contrafactum (or parody) setting, which was published in Telemann's Getreue Musicmeister in 1728. Wolfgang Reich, in his catalog of Zelenka's works (the ZWV), lists this canon as Secular, most likely because it would have been inappropriate to use it in the liturgy, in spite of its text's devotional nature.
