So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

English Motets: choral works from the Renaissance masters adapted by Heath Morber.

"I can certainly vouch that parish and chapel choirs would greatly benefit from adding pieces of this book to their repertoire, especially when trying to prepare for Masses week after week. Indeed, I can think of about ten thousand parishes in the United States that would instantly experience musical elevation and edification if only they could stretch their horizons and, acknowledging that something is missing, insert some Renaissance polyphony.
"The music is superb; the texts are from Sacred Scripture; the entire project is in perfect accord with Sacrosanctum Concilium's call for good, holy, and edifying sacred music."—Peter Kwasniewski

These motets are two-part and three-part excerpts from the choral works of Renaissance composers, re-worked with English texts culled from throughout the church year (all the liturgical seasons and major feast days). The collection has 40 motets in two voicings each (e.g. SAT and ATB, SA and AT), plus one bonus SAB motet for weddings.—Lulu
