Per Gloriam Nominis Tui

By Ensemble Organum, from "Chant Mozarabe Cathédrale de Tolède (XVe siècle)." This piece was sung in the Mozarabic liturgy during solemn feastdays, as the rubrics of the Missal itself notes:

"Deinde, junctis manibus coram pectore, humiliter exeat, & eat ad Altare: & stans ante infimum gradum, faciat confessionem, & dum dicit: 'mea culpa', ter percutiat sibi pectus; dicendo prius in festis solemnioribus, 'Per Gloriam...'"
"Then, joining his hands before his breast, [the priest] shall humbly set out and go to the Altar; and standing before the lowest step, he shall make the confession, and begin to say, 'mea culpa', three times striking his breast; he shall begin to say during solemn feasts, 'Per Gloriam...'"

-Rubricas Generales De La Missa Gothica-Muzarabe Y El Omnium Offerentium (1772)

This hymn is unfortunately no longer included nor recited in the revised Mozarabic liturgy.

The images are, in order:

1.) An Altar frontal from La Seu dUrgell (ca. 12th century AD), presently at the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya in Barcelona, Catalonia.
2.) The Romanesque apse of the Fuentidueña Chapel (originally from the church of San Martín de Fuentidueña in Segovia in Castile-León; ca. 1175-1200) in The Cloisters, New York.
3.) and 4.) The Pórtico da Gloria (1168-1188) in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.
5.) A facsimile of the Girona Beatus (ca. 10th century), presently at the Cathedral of Girona, Catalonia.
6.) The chant's notation, from the Missale Mixtum Secundum Regulam Beati Isidori, Dictum Mozarabes (1755).
7.) The apse of the Hermitage of San Baudelio de Berlanga (11th century), Soria, Castile-León.
