for SSATB and organ continuo

Sweelinck's 5-voice (SSATB) Epiphany motet Ab Oriente, published in 1619, is a superb example of his polyphonic fluency and of his vivid response to the imagery of the text, depicting the steady, purposeful journey of the Magi, their adoration of the Babe, and of their prophetic gifts. A wonderful addition to the Epiphanytide repertoire and the CMS's expanding Sweelinck motet series.
