Adrian Willaert (c. 1490 – 1562) was a Netherlandish composer of the Renaissance and founder of the Venetian School. He was one of the most representative members of the generation of northern composers who moved to Italy and transplanted the polyphonic Franco-Flemish style there.

Willaert was one of the most versatile composers of the Renaissance, writing music in almost every extant style and form. In force of personality, and with his central position as maestro di cappella at St. Mark's, he became the most influential musician in Europe between the death of Josquin and the time of Palestrina. Some of Willaert's motets and chanzoni franciose a quarto sopra doi (double canonic chansons) had been published as early as 1520 in Venice. Willaert owes much of his fame in sacred music to his motets.

He is credited as the inventor of the antiphonal style from which the polychoral style of the Venetian school evolved. As there were two choir lofts — one to each side of the main altar of St. Mark's, both provided with an organ —, Willaert divided the choral body into two sections, using them either antiphonally or simultaneously. De Rore, Zarlino, Andrea Gabrieli, Donato, and Croce, Willaert's successors, all cultivated this style.

Intended for Chorus (SATB) and although incomplete, I reconstituted an ending and created this Arrangement of the "Quem dicunt homines esse filium hominis? (Whom do men say that the Son of man is?) for String Quartet (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
