Title: Mundi renovatio
Composer: Anonymous
Lyricist: Adam de Saint-Victoirecreate page

Number of voices: 3vv   Voicing: ATT
Genre: SacredSequence hymn for Easter Sunday

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

 Manuscript post 1445 in the Trent codices 93

Description: “De Resurrectione sequentia” transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr93. The notes' values are as in the manuscript. The time signature is missing, the “tempus perfectum” has been assumed from the context; the perfect notes have been dotted and a tie has been used for a note’s value that cannot be exactly represented. The traditional melody (as found in the Graduale Pataviense c. 206r) is paraphrased at the Superius. The 3rd section of the Contra, within square brackets, is editorial as this section is missing in the manuscript. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves - the right downstemmed note is a longa.

Latin.png Latin text

1. Mundi renovatio
Nova parit gaudia
Resurgenti Domino
Conresurgunt omnia
Elementa serviunt
Et auctoris sentiunt
Quanta sit solempnia

[2. Ignis volat mobilis
Et ær volubilis
Fluit aqua labilis
Terra manet stabilis
Alta petunt levia
Centrum tenent gravia
Renovantur omnia]

3. Cœlum fit serenius
Et mare tranquillius
Spirat aura levius
Vallis nostra floruit
Revirescunt arida
Recalescunt frigida
Postquam ver intepuit

[4. Gelu mortis solvitur
Princeps mundi tollitur
Et ejus destruitur
In nobis imperium
Dum tenere voluit
In quo nihil habuit
Jus amisit proprium]

5. Vita mortem superat
Homo jam recuperat
Quod prius amiserat
Paradisi gaudium
Viam præbet facilem
Cherubim versatilem
Amovendo gladium

[6. Christus cœlos reserat
Et captivos liberat
Quos culpa ligaverat
Sub mortis interitu
Pro tanta victoria
Patri, Proli gloria
Sit cum Sancto Spiritu.
Amen.]

Adam de Saint-Victor
