A motet from Sacrorum Symphoniarum, Nuremberg, 1600. This edition is offered at original pitch: treble parts might better be performed by high countertenors.

Lyrics: Psalm 71, v.20-23

Quantas ostendisti mihi tribulationes multas et malas, et conversus vivificasti me: et de abyssis terrae iterum reduxisti me.
Multiplicasti magnificentiam tuam: et conversus consolatus es me.
Nam et ego confitebor tibi in vasis psalmi veritatem tuam, Deus: psallam tibi in cithara, sanctus Israel.
Exultabunt labia mea cum cantavero tibi: et anima mea quam redemisti.

O what great troubles and adversities hast thou shewed me, and yet didst thou turn and refresh me: yea, and broughtest me from the deep of the earth again.
Thou hast brought me to great honour: and comforted me on every side.
Therefore will I praise thee and thy faithfulness, O God, playing upon an instrument of musick: unto thee will I sing upon the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
My lips will be fain when I sing unto thee: and so will my soul whom thou hast delivered.

Antonio Mortaro
(c.1570 - c.1620)

Quantas ostendisti mihi
