Missa Sanctissimae Virgini (Missa In illo tempore) EMP1078 £10.60
SSATTB Scoring legend Marian Feasts - Mass Ordinary ISMN M-2056-1078-4
A completely new edition replacing the Beauchamp Press version which we took over in 2008. This magnificent setting was the principal work in Monteverdi's 1610 collection which also included the famous Vespers. Based on melodic material from Gombert's 'In illo tempore' the work originally bore the title 'Missa Sanctissimae Virgini'. One of the grandest and most luscious of Monteverdi's works, it deserves to be as well-known as Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli or the Byrd 4-voice Mass. This version is at the original high pitch (only suitable for instruments).
Alternative version(s):
EMP1079 Down a fourth for male voices
EMP1080 Down a third (in 'A')
