EMP0994 Croce, Giovanni Missa Percussit Saul mille
SATB SATB bc Mass Ordinary, General Use £9.50
A magnificent mass, a parody on Croce's own motet. Our standard version is a tone lower than the high-clef original and omits the 'Partidura'.

EMP1004 Croce, Giovanni Buccinate
SATB SATB Motet general, Ascension £9.25
A splendid piece appropriate for the Ascension but presumably originally written for the annual Lepanto celebration at S. Giustina, for which the phrase 'exultate Deo adjutori nostro' would have been very apposite. Here offered as a set of parts (each choir consisting of cornett, 2 sackbuts and bass sackbut or curtal/dulcian) to be played with the voices.
EMP1006 Croce, Giovanni Omnes gentes
SATB SATB Motet general, Ascension £9.00
A magnificent double-choir setting of the familiar Ascensiontide text. Here offered as a set of parts (each choir consisting of cornett, 2 sackbuts and bass sackbut or curtal/dulcian) to be played with the voices.
EMP1007 Croce, Giovanni Laudate Dominum in sanctis eius Ps. 150
SATB SATB Psalm at Lauds, Easter £9.00
Croce provided settings of all five 'Cinque Laudate' psalms in his Vespertina collection. This setting of the 'other' Laudate psalm (which is also sung at the Office of the Dead) is from the Motetti 8 voci of 1594. Here offered as a set of parts (each choir consisting of cornett, 2 sackbuts and bass sackbut or curtal/dulcian) to be played with the voices.
EMP1009 Croce, Giovanni Percussit Saul mille
SATB SATB Respond, Sunday after Pentecost £9.75
This version is a fourth lower than the high-clef original, ideal for performance with cornetts and sackbuts. A text found in no other setting, its belligerent - indeed pugnacious - character makes it apparent that it was written either for the annual Lepanto commemoration, or - most likely - to celebrate the Habsburg victory at Sisak in 1593. The source collection, Croce's first book of double-choir motets of 1594, was dedicated to Raimondo Della Torre, the Ambassador to Venice of the Holy Roman Empire. Here offered as a set of parts (each choir consisting of cornett, 2 sackbuts and bass sackbut or curtal/dulcian) to be played with the voices.
EMP1010 Croce, Giovanni Missa Percussit Saul mille
SATB SATB Mass Ordinary, General Use £12.50
A magnificent mass, a parody on Croce's own motet. The piece is available with or without the two-part 'Partidura', the original continuo or director's part. Our standard version is a tone lower than the high-clef original and omits the 'Partidura'. This version, the one best suited for performance with cornetts and sackbuts, is a 4th lower than the original high pitch, here without the Partidura. Here offered as a set of parts (each choir consisting of cornett, 2 sackbuts and bass sackbut or curtal/dulcian) to be played with the voices. Organ part available separately.
EMP1013 Anonymous De profundis
SATB 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! This version is transposed up a 4th from the original pitch.
EMP1014 Various Three French Masses
SATB Mass Ordinary, General Use £11.10
Three masses by French composers.
EMP1018 Croce, Giovanni Missa Secunda tertii toni
TrMAABa Mass Ordinary £6.30
The second of three short masses for five voices published in 1596, which were reprinted together with a fourth, for 6 voices, in 1599. Here a 3rd below the original pitch
EMP1019 Croce, Giovanni Missa Secunda tertii toni
TrMAABa Mass Ordinary £6.30
The second of three short masses for five voices published in 1596, which were reprinted together with a fourth, for 6 voices, in 1599. Here at original pitch
EMP1024 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. Given here a tone lower than the high-clef original.
EMP1026 Weelkes, Thomas Gloria in excelsis Deo
SSAATB Anthem, Christmas £4.00
This is one of the best-known pieces of English church music, but it has always been presented a third higher than the original. It is also available from us at that pitch, but this version is at the original pitch, suitable for AATTBaB etc.
EMP1027 Weelkes, Thomas Gloria in excelsis Deo
SSAATB Anthem, Christmas £4.00
This is one of the best-known pieces of English church music. Our edition seems to be the only one which is available at the original pitch, suitable for male voices SSAATB, but we also provide it a third higher, as here.
EMP1028 Elgar, Sir Edward Carol: I sing the birth
SATB Christmas £3.00
This little-known carol is a setting of the text by Ben Jonson, with added Alleluias. It dates from 1928, in the final phase of Elgar's life, which may be why the original print (Novello's Musical Times supplement December 1928) was not properly proof-read: it contains several wrong notes. This edition has been made afresh from Elgar's two manuscripts in the British Library.
EMP1030 Procter, Michael Ich rufe dich an
SAB Introitus, 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time £2.50
Einfache 3-stimmige Vertonung des Eröffnungsverses. Für die Choralschola St Michael, Weingarten.
EMP1031 Byrd, William Alleluia. Ave Maria
SSATB Introitus, Votive Mass BVM £4.00
The Greater Alleluia for the Mass of the Annunciation when this falls in Eastertide. Byrd printed it out of order in the Gradualia but in the form in which it there appears it belongs to the Annunciation. Here at original high-clef pitch.
EMP1032 Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da Hodie Christus natus est
SSMA Magnificat Antiphon, Christmas £3.00
This simple setting is from a holograph manuscript at S. Giovanni Laterano. Its original cleffing (TrTrMA) is an 'ad aequales' combination allowing for transposition to suit the available forces. Other versions are available for different combinations of voices, this version is at the original pitch.
EMP1033 Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da Hodie Christus natus est
TTBB Magnificat Antiphon, Christmas £3.00
This simple setting is from a holograph manuscript at S. Giovanni Laterano. Its original cleffing (TrTrMA) is an 'ad aequales' combination allowing for transposition to suit the available forces.

EMP1034 Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da Hodie Christus natus est
SATB Magnificat Antiphon, Christmas £3.00
