Although Rossetti was well regarded during his own time, he was neglected in subsequent periods. These eighteen motets (originally published in 1573), offered here for the first time in modern edition, reveal Rossetti as a composer of particular sensitivity and imagination. The settings, with texts drawn chiefly from the Psalms, are mostly for five voices.
Verba mea auribus percipe, Domine
Quoniam ad te orabo, Domine
Veni Sancte Spiritus
Domine, quando veneris iudicare terram
Domine, probasti me et cognovisti me
Viri Galilaei, quid admiramini aspicientes in caelum?
Domine Jesu Christe, Fili Dei vivi
Aspice Domine, quia facta est desolata civitas
Muro tuo inexpugnabili
Ad te, Domine, levavi animam mean
Levavi oculos meos in montes
Homo natus de muliere, brevi vivens tempore
Tribularer, si nescirem misericordias tuas
Tulerunt Dominum meum, et nescio ubi posuerunt eum
Laudate Dominum, omnes gentes, laudate eum, omnes populi
Cantate Domino canticum novum
O gloriosa Domina, excelsa super sidera
Beati pauperes spiritu
