Misc. Comments

  • Palestrina set the Incipit oratio Jeremiae prophetae at least 3 times; RISM has entries for a 4-voice, a 6-voice, and an 8-voice setting. All 3 are for the liturgical festival Sabbato Sancto.
  • The RISM link above gives the voicing as "S (2), A (2), T, B", which is slightly different from Macchi's version.
