About this Item

Thomas of Celano, fl. 1257, is generally supposed to have been the author of the original Latin of the "Dies irae," a sequence probably originally written for Advent Sunday, but more familiar from its use in the requiem mass. Abraham Coles has included an introduction to the hymn, a history with variant texts, a number of translations for comparison, a note on the nature of the sequence as a liturgical piece and as a piece of music, and finally a version in modern notation with a simplified melody. There are two photo plates, of a painting of the last judgement (as frontispiece), and of parable of the sheep and the goats. 8vo. xxxiv, 65, [1 (blank)] p., [1] f. (music). [2] plts (incl frontis.). NSTC 2C30337 (Imprint 3) & 2D13369 (Imprint 2). Contemporary morocco, covers and spine compartments panelled and framed in blind with gilt-stamped title on covers and in second compartment: abraded with front cover detached and tears to spine leather. Beautiful marbled endpapers and gilt inner dentelles. All edges gilt. Rubber- and pressure-stamps, including ones on title-page. Bookseller Inventory # 11900
