In honor of the Feast of the Ascension, and for your meditation and listening pleasure (courtesy of a Youtuber named Enrique Guerrero):
Ascendens Christus in altum, captivam duxit captivitatem: dedit dona hominibus.
Ascendit Deus in jubilatione, et Dominus in voce tubae.
Dedit dona hominibus.
Dominus in caelo paravit sedem suam.
Christ, ascending on high, led captivity captive: He gave gifts to men.
God is gone up with a merry noise, and the Lord with the sound of the trumpet.
He gave gifts to men.
The Lord hath prepared his seat in heaven.
This beautiful work was published in 1572, while the young Victoria was studying for the priesthood in Rome. The text is taken from the matins responsory for the Feast of the Ascension.
