Fuit homo missus a Deo
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina
Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen Joannes erat:
Hic venit ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine et pararet Domino plebem perfectam.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
Resposory for St John the Baptist
