The information about the sources and the particular context of each song is a work in progress. These summaries, variously based on the observations of composers, writers, and/or authoritative interpreters of each song, are provided to assist in the presentation, teaching, and performance of this music. We welcome additional or corrective information to this resource, which may be sent to email@example.com.
This song is the refrain of a short text from a 9th-century Latin hymn for the Offices, those monastic services said or sung at eight intervals each day, following the Rule of St. Benedict, 535 C.E. For information about theTaizé tradition, see De Noche; for information about the composer, Jacques Berthier, see Vieni Spirito Creatore.
