This splendid piece for double choir by Philippe de Monte is known only from a single manuscript, Mus. MS 40028 of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. This is one of two large choirbooks in score written chiefly by Adam Gumpelzhaimer, and the motet is in his hand. The text, that of Psalm 150, is indicated only below the Bassus of each choir and is here entirely editorial. The piece was first printed in the earlier Complete Edition (van den Borren/Doorslaer 1927-39) where a number of minor errors were transmitted. These have been corrected in this edition, prepared directly from the manuscript by kind permission of the Music Department, Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.

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.
