Hey Early21 & Moggs,
The text is a biblical setting, from Psalms 30:6 [LVB, Latin Vulgate Bible]. It is in Latin, but I have provided the phrase translations below the text.
The audio is similar to the Dorico presets - I am using Olympus Elements (I think Olympus Micro is in the presets?) through Kontakt as a VST. You can also do this with SIbelius, although Dorico I think makes this process a bit easier
It is not modernized by intent, what I meant in response to moggs is that I chose this piece out of the five to represent the rest, because the Ionian mode tends to resonate to the modern ear more. The modern ear is used to the major key /minor key common practice system, and Ionian is in essence the major key. The rest of the pieces are in the other main modes of the late Renaissance (although my Dorian piece turned out to sound very Aeolian, which can be somewhat expected if you study the style deeper).
This is a process in my style studies in counterpoint - my intention was to learn, and enjoy - not to keep it purely Renaissance, but still as much as possible in the style. I have very small deviations of mode and mixture in some of the other pieces, which I address in foot notes.
I am currently working on a 4-part motet set inspired by the Renaissance style (which gives more room for modality flow, among other things).
Thank you! I really appreciate the encouragement.
