Trinity Sunday 2021

Vidi Dóminum sedentem super solium excelsum et elevátum, et plena erat omnis terra majestáte ejus: * Et ea, quae sub ipso erant, replébant templum. V. Séraphim stabant super illud: sex alæ uni, et sex alæ álteri. R. Et ea, quæ sub ipso erant, replébant templum. (The first responsory at Matins of Trinity Sunday.)

The Most Holy Trinity; from an illuminated Gospel book for major feasts produced in the neighborhood of Konstanz, Germany, ca. 1475, now in the library of the Abbey of San Gallen in Switzerland.

R. I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and the whole earth was full of His glory; * And His train filled the temple. V. Above it stood the Seraphim each one had six wings. R. And His train filled the temple.

A polyphonic setting for choir and orchestra by the Spanish composer Anotnio Juanas (1755 ca. - after 1819), who worked as master of the cathedral of Alcalà de Henares and Mexico City.
