Hubert Waelrant (c. 1517-1595): Pater Abraham (5vv) [Sacrarum cantionum liber sextus, 1558?]

Our new collection of today is Waelrant's opera magna Sacrarum cantionum liber sextus. After publishing other composer's works, Hubert Waelrant self published a fascinating collection of fifteen motets around 1558, scored for five and six voices. The first motet of the Cantionum sacrarum is Pater Abraham, which includes some audicious and expressive harmonic twists that match the text (Now, however, he is consoled here, and you are truly in agony.)
