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

Common of Martyrs; Common of Apostles

Euntes ibant et flebant, mittentes semina sua.
Venientes autem venient cum exsultatione, portantes manipulos suos. [Psalm 125/126:6]

He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
