Motet in three parts
Quam pulchra es et quam decora, 何其美好!何其可悅!
carissima in deliciis. 令人歡愉的吾愛
Statura tua assimilata est palme, 你的身量好像棕樹;
et ubera tua botris. 你的雙乳如同其上的果子,累累下垂
Caput tuum ut Carmelus, 你的頭在你身上好像Carmel山
collum tuum sicut turris eburnea. 你的頸項如象牙台

Veni, dilecte mi, 來吧! 我的愛人
egrediamur in agrum, 你我可以往田間去
et videamus si flores fructus parturierunt, 我們早起去看看葡萄發芽開花沒有
si floruerunt mala Punica. 石榴放蕊沒有
Ibi dabo tibi ubera mea. 我在那裡要將我的愛給你
Alleluia.

The Marian antiphon Salve Regina sung here by the Hilliard Ensemble’s counter-tenor David James. This performance, the performance by Henry’s Eight about which I wrote on November 26, 2013, and the performance by the child choristers of Salisbury Cathedral about which I wrote on July 15, 2013 are three performances of it as chant that I return to again and again.

There are many settings of it that I love and admire such as the stunningly beautiful setting by Mangon or De Victoria’s or Byrd’s settings but again and again I come back to the Chant in all its hauntingly beauty.- saturdaychorale

The image (text of the Psalm) is from cardinal Cajetanus‘ Psalmi Davidici ad hebraicam veritatem castigati. Venentia, L. Giunta, 1530.
King David playing the harp is an illumination at the beginning of the book of Psalms (Bible of Anjou, 14th century).
