Gottfried von Preyer (1807 – 1901) was an Austrian composer, conductor and teacher. He studied with Simon Sechter from 1828 to 1834. He became professor of harmony and composition at the Vienna Conservatory in 1839, and from 1844 to 1849 he was director of the conservatory. He was also Vizehofkapellmeister and Domkapellmeister of St. Stephan. He founded children's hospital Gottfried von Preyer'sches Kinderspital bearing his name.

Ecce sacerdos magnus is an antiphon and a responsory from the common of confessor bishops in the Liturgy of the Hours and in the Graduale Romanum, and the Epistle in their proper Mass.

The responsory Ecce sacerdos magnus for the festival of a confessor bishop, from the Liber Responsorialis juxta Ritum Monasticum, Solesmes, 1895, page 194. Since it is the second responsory of its nocturn, it doesn't have a half-doxology. The responsory ends with the repetition of the partial respond.Its words are, Ecce sacerdos magnus, qui in diebus suis, placuit Deo, which means, "behold the great priest, who in his days, pleased God". In certain cases, those words are followed by: et inventus est iustus (meaning, and has been found just). In others , the response is: Non est inventus similis illi, qui conservaret legem excelsi (no one has been found to be like him in the keeping of the laws of the Most High).

English Translation: Behold a great priest who in his days pleased God: Therefore by an oath the Lord made him to increase among his people. To him He gave the blessing of all nations, and confirmed His covenant upon his head. Therefore by an oath the Lord made him to increase among his people. Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. . .

The priest mentioned in the hymn refers to Christ, the high priest, in whose place the bishop stands. It has been often set to music by composers, including Anton Bruckner and Edward Elgar.

Although this piece was originally written for Chorus (SATB) & Organ, I created this arrangement for Acoustic Piano.
