Solo Instrument: organ
Description: Quiet organ music is played at the dead man's funeral; we don't see the source of the music, although it is clearly being played in the adjacent chapel
On-screen: A funeral
Analysis: This motet could be used as a kind of irony or satire (I'm not sure which) to suggest that San Fransisco is worshipping and adoring Amato (or at least letting him rule) instead of Christ, as the text of the motet suggests
