Pérotin, Sederunt Principes. Organum Quadruplum. c.1199 CE.

Performed by the Hilliard Ensemble.

Pérotin, a pioneer of organum triplum and quadruplum, was a famous European composer who lived from the late 12th to early 13th century. The most famous member of the Notre Dame School of Polyphony, Pérotin holds his place high among the Medieval composers.

Sederunt Principes is a gradual written for the Mass of the Feast of St. Stephen, using text from Psalm 118. Written using specific rhythmic modes, much like Viderunt Omnes, the motet is a grand work that was to be sung in Notre Dame as a processional.

Sederunt principes, et adversum me loquebantur:
et iniqui persecunti sunt me.
Adjuva me, Domine Deus meus:
salvum me fac propter misericordiam tuam.

The princes sat, and spoke against me:
they have persecuted me unjustly.
Do thou help me, Lord my God:
Save me for thy mercy's sake.
