Aures ad nostras deitatis preces (score to use)
  • A neat pre-Tridentine Lenten office hymn. You should use it sometime.

    Slight variant in my transcription based on a recording I heard. Included GABC below for those who wish to tweak in their own way:

    It's also in the Liber Hymnarius with a different melody. However, I don't like Lentini's modifications.

    I presume that the mode would be transposed mode II?

    A version using the music for the article in the NLM is here, https://societyofstbede.wordpress.com/2024/02/18/lenten-office-hymns/
    The society have also set the variant text Aures ad notras.

    There's a nice three-voice setting by Victoria in the Lindusky Tricinia Sacra.
  • On a mailing list I subscribe to, this very hymn was sent out a few minutes ago!
