Eucharistic motet for the feast of Corpus Christi from Motecta quinque vocum (book 2), Venice, 1604.

This edition is offered at original pitch for S.A.A.A.B., or transposed down a fourth for S.A.T.T.B. The original is cleffed in chiavette (high clefs). Both pitch and the wide range of essentially equal parts present problems for the two lower inner parts in performance: the range is slightly less uncomfortable for altos than for tenors. The transposition represents the better practical solution.
Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Caro mea vere est cibus et sanguis meus vere est potus.
Qui manducat hunc panem vivet in aeternum. Alleluia.

My flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
He that eateth of this bread shall live forever. Alleluia.
