SATB Graduale, Easter £3.00
This is one of only 24 Latin sacred motets by Arcadelt, who is better known for his over 120 chansons and 200 madrigals. But his output also includes three masses, Lamentations and Magnificat settings. Most of the motets are settings of liturgical texts: Haec dies is of course the Gradual on Easter Day. It is one of three motets printed in Moderne's anthology Motetti del fiore in 1532.

EMP0079 Gabrieli, Andrea Maria stabat ad monumentum
SAATBB Motet general, Easter £4.00
An extremely beautiful motet, set in the garden early on Easter morning.
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.
EMP0366 Lassus, Roland de (Orlandus Lassus, Orlando di Lasso) Missa Congratulamini
SSATTB Mass Ordinary, Easter £7.90
A very fine mass built on Lassus' own Eastertide motet.
EMP0514 Merulo, Claudio Adoramus te Domine Jesu Christe
SSATTB Motet general, Easter £3.00
A setting of a text derived from the Testament of St. Francis of Assisi (1226), suitable for Eastertide or for feasts of Holy Cross. The use of intermediate clefs (here Mezzosoprano) is typical for Merulo's second book of motets.

EMP0066 Croce, Giovanni Buccinate
SATB SATB Motet general, Ascension £4.00
One of my earliest transcriptions, made as a student in the 1970s, now finally typeset. 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.
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.

EMP0344 Finck, Heinrich Festum nunc celebre
SATB Hymn, Ascension £3.00
EMP1249 Gabrieli, Giovanni Omnes gentes
a 16: see description Ascension £6.00
One of the best-known of Gabrieli's large-scale pieces. Its text derives from Psalm 46, from which are drawn many of the proper texts for the Feast of the Ascension. Its cleffing TrSMT ATBaSb MATB SATSb requires a minimum of three instruments, a cornett for the top line and two low instruments (Bass trombone or curtal/dulcian) for the low bass parts. However, the third choir is marked Capella, suggesting that this is a 4-part vocal choir; the other groups are probably intended for (I) Solo Tenor and 3 cornetti; (II) Solo Alto and three trombones, (IV) Solo Soprano and three trombones or strings. Instrumental parts are available on request.
EMP0754 Isaac, Heinrich In Ascensione Domini
SATTBaB Mass Propers, Ascension £4.00

SAB Introitus, Ascension £2.50

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.
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.
