Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474): Veritas Mea

Over the weekend I listened to Dufay’s Missa de S Anthonii de Padua, at some point I’ll have to write about this extraordinary setting of the Mass. Dufay was particularly devoted to St. Anthony of Padua and his Missa de S Anthonii de Padua is remarkable both because of its extraordinary musical diversity and beauty and because of the circumstances in which a Mass long believed lost was rediscovered. Here’s the offertorium Veritas mea to whet your appetite. Enjoy :-).

Veritas mea et misericordia mea cum ipso:
et in nomine meo exaltabitur cornu eius

My truth and my mercy are with him:
and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
