Alle psallite cum luya

Alle Psallite Cum Luya is an anonymous three-part Latin motet from the early 13th century. It is recorded in the Montpellier Codex and is thought to have originated in France. The lyrics are based on the word Alleluia, which is repeated throughout in the tenor voice while the duplum and triplum voices sing lines with successively longer tropes inserted between alle and luya, as follows. The troped text consists of a series of enthusiastic affirmations, giving the piece a celebratory tone.
