Misc. Notes Altos and tenors are given with alto and tenor clefs, respectively (but treble clef in the parts) [Score]. Altos and tenors are given with treble clef both (but alto and tenor clef respectively in the score) [Parts]. I went back and forth on whether or not to use the treble clef with the little 8 for the tenors, but ultimately decided on the plain treble clef, which I think is quite clear enough.

Lyrics:

Locus iste, a Deo factus est,
inaestimabile sacramentum, irreprehensibilis est.
Locus iste, a Deo factus est.


This location [the church] was made by God,
a sacrament of inestimable value, irreproachable.

Published in 1886 as one of 4 Graduals by Rättig, Vienna
