Nos Imago Trinitatis

This hymn was used for Vespers for a unique feast from the Sarum Breviary. The Latin title of the feast, as it appears in the 1531 Folio edition of the Sarum Breviary, is “Festum Yconiæ (Iconiæ) Domini Salvatoris.” This may be translated as “The Feast of The Image of the Lord the Savior” or “a feast of an image of the Lord the Savior.” It’s place in the text is ambiguous and so far I have not been able to pin it down to a specific date or dates. 162 more words
