Josquin's Benedicta es, caelorum regina has been arranged for cello sextet by Hans Erik Deckert, who has had a prolific career in the fields of cello, conducting, and arrangement. The son of German and Danish parents, Deckert is rooted in both musical traditions and carries with him a wealth of knowledge that is highly sought-after. He has employed his musicianship in a wide number of arrangements of varying styles. This motet, which is a praise to the Virgin Mary "Blessed art thou, Queen of Heaven" belongs to the most famous choral works from the 14th century.
Benedicta es, caelorum regina contains a double cantus firmus 1st and 4th cello that dates from the 10th century. These voices are composed with a phenomenal polyphonic quality, which is derived from the cantus firmus. It is recommended to duplicate the main voices and place the ensemble in two groups 1st—3rd and 4th—6th cello facing each other. It is crucial to create a very transparent timbre and a dynamic that follows the energy and movements of the individual voices.

Benedicta es, coelorum regina (Josquin Desprez)
Josquin 's fame in our time is founded upon his renown throughout Christendom in the later sixteenth century. His six-voice motet setting of the Marian sequence Benedicta es, coelorum regina helped to cement that fame. It survives in at least twenty-four early manuscripts and printed collections of music; lutenists and keyboard players among them Antonio de Cabezon made numerous arrangements of it. At least four mass settings, by Willaert , Georges de la Helle, Phillipe de Monte , and Palestrina parody the Josquin motet; Jean Mouton composed a motet, on the same text, imitating the music's style and melodic character. Cristobal de Morales wrote a mass quoting both from this motet and Mouton's, possibly initiating a long tradition of Spanish double-parody mass settings. A well-known piece of Gregorian chant provides the cantus firmus model for Josquin 's perennial favorite. Benedicta es was sung during the mass for a number of feasts of the Virgin Mary though the Council of Trent later removed this sequence from the liturgy.
