Unlike the majority of Lusitano’s surviving motets, this Cantus Firmus setting of Psalm 128 was not published during his lifetime and existed only in a manuscript source from the Ducal court in Stuttgart dating from 1562. The style is noticeably different from his other Latin motets and, given its omission from his 1553 publication, it is likely to have been written around the time of his conversion to Protestantism and his subsequent flight to Württemberg in 1561. Despite the Latin text, clarity of text setting is a clear priority and the jaunty rhythms are more reminiscent of contemporary secular music than of Counter-Reformation polyphony.
