Apostolo glorioso, da Dio electo

Language: Italian - Medieval (Volgare)

Triplum and Contratenor I
 Apostolo glorioso, da Dio electo
 A evangelegiare al populo Greco
 La sua incarnacion che vera ceco,
 Et cusi festi senza alcun suspecto,
 Et eligisti Patrasso per tuo lecto,
 Et per sepulcro questo sancto speco:
 Prego te, preghi me retrove teco,
 per li tuoi merci, nel devin conspecto.

Motetus and Contratenor II
 Cum tua doctrina convertisti a Cristo
 Tuto el paese, et cum la passione et morte
 Che qui portasti in croce in su lo olivo.
 Mo é prolasso in errore et facto tristo,
 Si che rempetraglie gracia si forte
 Che recognoscano Dio vero et vivo.

Tenor
 Andreas famulus Christi.
