Andrea Gabrieli
Moderate (Grades 4-6)
8 minutes
Classical music
Instrumental parts
Not available

This splendid motet by Andrea Gabrieli, from his Sacrae Cantiones of 1565, is unusual in being a setting of an entire psalm: Psalm CXX (121 in Anglican/Protestant Psalter). Although Psalm-Motets were increasingly often composed after the introduction of the form by Josquin des Pres, the commonest were of course settings of the Penitential Psalms - as indeed set by Gabrieli. This setting for SATTB is in three partes, of which the second drops the Cantus; it has a total duration of almost 8 minutes.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
