This is one of several short sacred motets written by the adolescent Claudio Monteverdi during the years that he studied with his Maestro Marc' Antonio Ingegneri. The Group on the recording from 1996 is the Ensemble Vocale Barbara Strozzi from Florence Italy. The motet can be sung a little faster than the sample presented, and can be performed by a Chorus of Equal voices or by three soloists, SSA / SMA / SAT . The original mode is based on F, as is most of the Renaissance literature, where singers transposed works at will.

O Father and God of my life;
Do not abbandon me to the power of evil thoughts,
nor to the haughtiness in my eyes;
Do not give me your strength
and keep far from my mind all my desires.
