EMP0345 Finck, Heinrich Wedding Mass 1511
SATTBaB Mass Ordinary Reiner Schneider-Waterberg £11.10
Missa O Venus bant, also known as Missa In Summis, composed for the wedding of Ulrich von Württemberg and Sabine von Bayern
EMP1092 Gabrieli, Giovanni Miserere 1597
SATBaBaB £4.00
A revised edition of a marvellous piece from Gabrieli's 1597 collection, with original note-values restored. The 6-voice pieces in the collection represent a starting point for Gabrieli's exploration of a new style: here he pays tribute to Josquin, but makes it clear that he is moving on.
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.
EMP0109 Isaac, Heinrich De radice Jesse
SATB £2.50
The same music as Conceptio Mariae Virginis, with a different text - a contrafactum, in fact.
EMP0116 Isaac, Heinrich Sancti spiritus (Reichstag, Konstanz 1507)
SATB Occasional piece Manuscript edition £5.00
One of two motets (the other was Virgo prudentissima) composed by Isaac for the Reichstag summoned by Maximilian at Constance in 1507 to confirm his title as Emperor. This edition with reconstructed text was compiled from the two surviving manuscript sources.
EMP0118 Isaac, Heinrich Virgo prudentissima
SSATBB Occasional piece £5.00
The famous 'Kaisermotette' for the Reichstag in Konstanz, 1507. Michael Procter considers this to be a contrafactum of a lost original setting of the liturgical text, which is the Magnificat Antiphon for the Assumption. The Missa Virgo Prudentissima, thought to have been performed in Innsbruck in 1503, was then a parody on the lost original. The Kaisermotette itself was retexted again in 1558 in honour of Maximilian's grandson Karl V, with the text 'Christus Filius Dei': this version is also available on request. Instrumental parts for the typical 'Maximilian scoring' with cornetti and trombones are also available.
EMP1676 Isaac, Heinrich Virgo prudentissima
SSATBB Occasional piece £12.50

Michael Procter considers this to be a contrafactum of a lost original setting of the liturgical text, which is the Magnificat Antiphon for the Assumption. The Missa Virgo Prudentissima, thought to have been performed in Innsbruck in 1503, was then a parody on the lost original. The Kaisermotette itself was retexted again in 1558 in honour of Maximilian's grandson Karl V, with the text 'Christus Filius Dei': this version is also available on request.

EMP1128 Clemens non Papa, Jacobus Sanctus

Known only from an 18th century manuscript in the British Library, this piece was originally a textless canon for 5 voices, in the bass clef. It has been adapted here to the single word 'Sanctus'.

EMP0786 Merulo, Claudio Dominus illuminatio mea
SMATBaBB £3.00

A setting of the whole of Psalm 99 and thus difficult to identify with any specific liturgy, although the whole Psalm is of course regularly chanted,

SAATTB £4.00
A lovely extended madrigal which provided the model for one of Andrea Gabrieli's magnificent 6-voice masses, available from us (EMP0777). The original is in high clefs with the unusual scoring TrMMAAT; the piece is usually offered a third lower as here but can be provided at other pitches as required.
