Description: The "Choir Books of Annaberg", a collection of manuscripts, were brought from the court of Friedrich der Weise (residing in Wittenberg since 1486) to the church of Annaberg on the occasion of the inauguration. It was St. Anne's day, 26th July in 1519, when the inauguration of this church took place. The books remained there for more than four centuries until they were transferred to the library of Saxony in Dresden (SLUB). First printed edition of this work was in 1507 in Basel, as part of the collection "concentus harmonici".

Latin.png Latin text

Sub tuum praesidium
(appears in every movement in the top voice)
Sub tuum praesidium confugimus,
Sancta Dei Genetrix
nostras deprecationes ne despicias
in necessitatibus.
Sed a periculis cunctis libera nos
semper Virgo benedicta.

Audi nos
(appears in the Credo in the second highest voice)
Audi nos, nam te fidelius, nihil negans, honorat.
Salva nos, Jesu, pro quibus virgo mater teorat.

Mediatrix nostra
(appears in the Sanctus-Benedictus in the second highest and second lowest voices)
Mediatrix nostra, quae es post Deum, spes sola,
tuo filio nos repraesenta.

Supplicamus
(appears in the Agnus Dei in the third highest voice)
Supplicamus, nos emenda,
emendatos nos commenda,
O clemens, o pia,
o dulcis Maria.

Celsus nuntiat Gabriel
(appears in the Agnus Dei in the second highest and third lowest voices)
Celsus nuntiat Gabriel nova gaudia.
Regina coeli laetare, alleluia.
