Licence Information

Our licence system obviously depends on good faith but it highlights and protects our copyright, which is at greater risk in digital publishing. All proceeds from our sales support Musica Secreta’s charitable objects – research, performing, and recording – so by buying from us you are helping us make more female-voice polyphonic repertoire available to everyone.

Text and translation

Matins responsory, Common of virgins

Regnum mundi et omnem ornatum seculi contempsi propter amorem Domini mei Ihesu Christi, quem vidi, quem amavi in quem credidi, quem dilexi.

I hold in contempt the worldly kingdom and all secular ornaments, for the love of my Lord Jesus Christ, whom I have seen, whom I have loved, and in whom I believed, and in whom I delighted.
