A polyphonic motet over the psalm verse "Come and behold how dear the Lord is; Blessed the man who hopes upon Him". This edition is based on a facsimile copy of the original partbooks. I have transposed the piece up to make all tessiturae comfortable for a modern mixed choir. When transposed down, the piece also works very well with ATB.
