Viderunt Omnes is one of the earliest known polyphonic choral works. Composed by the French composer Perotinus Magnus (Pérotin the Great) in the late 12th Century—according to some, in 1198 for the Feast fof the Circumcision—the work is striking for its setting of the text "Viderunt Omnes" in slow moving four part harmony, with long melismatic phrasing.

The Virginia Glee Club performed "Viderunt Omnes" several times in the 1994-1995 season.
