EMP0386 de Monte, Philippe Missa Cara la vita mia
SSATB Mass Ordinary, General Use Other £10.30
Based on the madrigal by Wert.
EMP0393 Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da Missa Ut Re Mi Fa
SSATTB Mass Ordinary, General Use £9.50
This mass, together with the Missa BMV, forms the 6-part section of Palestrina's Third Book of masses for 4, 5 and 6 voices (1570). There exists a manuscript in the library of the Sistine Chapel, giving the date as 1563, so we may suppose the mass to date from Palestrina's return, after his difficult years at S. John Lateran, to S. Maria Maggiore. As well as being unusually scored - for SSAATB - it is his only Hexachord Mass, and displays his considerable gifts: the second Superius sings only the cantus firmus, ascending and descending, either in the natural or the hard hexachord, but in an enormously varied and varying series of rhythms. In the final Agnus a third Alto sings in canon a fifth below the second Superius. The edition has now been revised and includes the Credo. Here a 4th lower than the high-clef original.
EMP0394 Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da Pater noster
SSTTB Prayer, General Use £3.00
EMP0408 Anonymous De profundis
ATBaB Psalm, Penitential £4.00
This setting of the penitential psalm has become well-known in the attribution to Josquin which is now widely rejected. No reason to stop singing the piece!
EMP0411 de la Rue, Pierre Missa pro Defunctis
SATB Mass Ordinary, Requiem £6.30
The famous Requiem which is scored in abysmally low clefs (including Gamma-3). It is here offered at the correct transposition, which works out at SATB pitch, but is also available at the original pitch.
EMP0414 Byrd, William Domine exaudi
SAATB Psalm-Motet, Penitential £4.00
A lengthy setting of the first 2 verses of Ps. 142.
EMP0415 Byrd, William Though Amaryllis dance in green
SATBaB Secular £3.00
One of Byrd's most popular, but by no means easier madrigals. Offered a fourth lower than the original.
EMP0416 Byrd, William Haec dicit Dominus
SATTB Holy Innocents (December 28) £4.00
One of the most extreme of Byrd's 'Jerusalem' motets.
EMP0417 Byrd, William Tribulationes civitatum
SATTB Penitential £4.75
Another of Byrd's 'Jerusalem' motets.
EMP0421 Handl, Jakob (Gallus) Rorate coeli
SSATBB Introitus, Marian Feasts £3.00
EMP0423 Finck, Heinrich Veni sancte spiritus
SAATTBB Alleluia, Pentecost (Whitsun) £4.00
An unsual and very grand setting for seven voices, thought to have been composed for the Wedding of Ulrich von Württemberg and Sabine von Bayern in 1511, the occasion for which the great Wedding mass was also composed.
EMP0424 Finck, Heinrich Veni creator spiritus/Accipite spiritum sanctum
SATTB Hymn, Pentecost (Whitsun) £2.50
A setting which combines the hymn text Veni creator with a Pentecost Antiphon.
EMP0425 Finck, Heinrich Jesus Christus salus nostra
SATTB Hymn, General Use £2.50
EMP0427 Parsons, Robert Ave Maria
MTTBaB Motet general, Marian Feasts £4.00
The famous piece is here presented at the original pitch, clearly for men's voices.
EMP0428 Weelkes, Thomas Thule, the period of cosmographie
SSATTB Secular Pierre Funck and Michael Procter £4.00
The celebrated madrigal is given here at the correct transposed pitch.
EMP0470 Handl, Jakob (Gallus) O Sapientia
SATBB Magnificat Antiphon, Advent £3.00
A setting of one of the 'Great O' Antiphons (Dec. 17)
EMP0476 Lassus, Roland de (Orlandus Lassus, Orlando di Lasso) Tenebrae Responsories: Holy Saturday
SATB Tenebrae Responsories, Holy Saturday (Easter Eve)(Karsamstag) £5.00
The Responsories for the second and third Nocturns of Tenebrae (Matins) on Holy Saturday. I Recessit pastor noster, II O vos omnes, III Ecce quomodo moritur, IV Astiterunt reges terrae, V Aestimatus sum, VI Sepulto Domino
EMP0479 Gibbons, Orlando The Cries of London
SSATTB voices and viols Secular £4.75
The celebrated piece, essentially a 6-part Viol Fantasy with vocal interjections (steet cries, watchman, beggars...). This is the vocal score.
EMP0484 Glinka, Mikhail Ivanovitch Song of the Cherubim (Izhe Cherubimi)1837
SSAATBBF Motet general £4.00
First of a series of Russian church pieces. This work requires some basses with bottom C.
EMP0486 Lassus, Roland de (Orlandus Lassus, Orlando di Lasso) Angelus Domini
SSATTB Motet general, Easter £3.00
A splendid Easter piece, typically combining a deep sense of the text and a madrigalistic approach to the words.
EMP0488 Baccusi, Ippolito Missa Quel Rossignuol
SSATTB Mass Ordinary, General Use £10.30
A lovely parody mass, whose madrigal model has not yet been identified. Baccusi was maestro di cappella at Santo Stefano in Venice, possibly for two periods, at the end of the 16th century. This version is a 4th lower than the original.
EMP0489 Wert, Giaches de Gaudete in Domino semper
SATTB Motet general, Advent £3.00
Rejoice in the Lord alway, and again I say rejoice!
EMP0490 Wert, Giaches de Vox clamantis in deserto
SMATTB Motet general, Advent £4.00
The opening of Vox clamantis is an antiphon sung in Advent. Wert's setting is of a longer version of the text from Isaiah Chapter 40, which will be familiar from Handel's The Messiah: Every valley shall be exalted... The extraordinary ranges, deriving obviously from the text, make this splendid piece a challenge for any group.
EMP0491 Wert, Giaches de O crux ave
SATTB Motet general, Passiontide £4.00
A verse from the hymn Vexilla regis, in honour of Holy Cross.
EMP0492 Wert, Giaches de O sacrum convivium
SATTB Communion, Eucharist £3.00
