Anonymous: Sana me, Domine

This is an anonymous motet from the manuscript 11 of the Valladolid Cathedral (E-V ms. 11). It is the last of the volume (nº 20) and the only one in E-V ms. 11 scored for six voices (SSATTB). A very unusual chord occurs in measure 53 (an E chord with G# and G natural and a Bb flat, possibly a copyist mistake).

The text is a fragment from Jeremiah 17:14:

Sana me, Domine et sanabor.
Salvum me fac et salvus ero,
quoniam salus mea tu es.
