Factum est silentium was printed, as far as I can establish for the first time, in Proske's collection Musica Divina. The motet is one of the finest of Anerio's four-part settings. I have followed Proske here, but have put the score into modern clefs. When I find original source material the edition will be revised.The text is a variant of that of a Respond for the feast of St Michael Archangel.

There was silence in Heaven as the dragon fought with the Archangel Michael. And there came the voice of thousands and thousands, saying: Glory and praise and honour be to Almighty God. Thousands and thousands were in his service, and many hundred thousand came to his aid.
