Tu, gloria Jerusalem

The work was created as an antiphon for the festive novena to St. Teresa of Ávila. P. Carolus Josephus à Sigismundo OCD commissioned Brentner in Prague to compose music for the feast introduced by the Discalced Carmelite nuns of Graz in 1718. Later, the composition found use as a motet “de Beata Virgine Maria” or “de Virgine”.
