EMP0523 Anerio, Felice Alma Redemptoris Mater
SATB Marian Antiphon, Advent and Christmastide (until Purification) £3.00
A simple attractive setting, clearly influenced by Palestrina's but none the less worth exploring.
EMP0524 Anerio, Felice Factum est silentium
SATB Respond, St. Michael Archangel (September 29) £3.00
One of the best of the four-part pieces of Anerio, and a very effective setting of the text. Besides the settings by Deering and Mouton there is also a splendid double-choir setting by Croce.
EMP1605 Anerio, Felice Factum est silentium
SATB Respond, St. Michael Archangel (September 29) £3.00
One of the best of the four-part pieces of Anerio, and a very effective setting of the text. Besides the settings by Deering and Mouton there is also a splendid double-choir setting by Croce, recently added to our catalogue. This version is one tone higher than the original.
EMP0002 Animuccia, Giovanni Magnificat Quinti Toni
SATB Vesper Canticle £4.00
A simple but effective alternatim setting.
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.
EMP0525 Arcadelt. Jacques Haec dies
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.
EMP0695 Brumel, Antoine Sicut lilium
SATB Antiphon, Assumption BVM (August 15) £2.50
This short but beautiful piece by Brumel is a setting of a text from the Song of Songs: As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. The piece exists in several variant versions. The present edition is taken from the Medici Codex, a splendid choirbook produced under the supervision of Jean Mouton.
EMP0034 Byrd, William Ave verum corpus
SATB Motet general, Eucharist £3.00
One of the best-known and favourite pieces from the great Gradualia. The quasi-homophony found in so many highly expressive Renaissance pieces gives it an extraordinary intensity.
EMP0709 Byrd, William Mass Propers for the Feast of Christmas and Office Music for Christmastide
SATB Mass Propers, Christmas £6.00
It is with this splendid collection of Christmastide music that Byrd's second book of Gradualia opens. It includes the complete Propers for the principal (third) mass of Christmas Day, which are used throughout the Octave, together with settings of Hodie Christus natus est (Magnificat Antiphon), O magnum misterium/Beata Virgo (Matins Respond) and O admirabile commercium (Magnificat Antiphon for the Circumcision (Jan. 1)).
EMP0273 Byrd, William Missa 4 vocum
SATB Mass Ordinary, General Use £6.30
The well-known 'Mass for four voices' is a high-clef piece and is available at various pitches (here a semitone lower than the original). The Editor considers the piece should be sung down a fourth or a fifth by ATTB/ATBaB.
EMP0615 Byrd, William Missa 4 vocum
SATB Mass Ordinary, General Use £6.30
The mass is here transposed down a third, to a pitch suitable for mixed voices.
EMP0750 Byrd, William Missa 4 vocum
SATB Mass Ordinary, General Use £6.30
The well-known 'Mass for four voices' is a high-clef piece and is available at various pitches. The Editor considers the piece should be sung down a fourth or a fifth by ATTB/ATBaB. This version is at the original high pitch.
EMP0049 Byrd, William Salve Regina (1605)
SATB Marian Antiphon, Holy Trinity to the Saturday before Advent £3.00
The simple setting from the Gradualia.
EMP0686 Cosset, Francois Missa Exultate Deo
SATB Mass Ordinary, General Use £5.00
One of three French masses added to our catalogue in summer 2006. Cosset worked mainly at Reims. His masses are counted among the best of the period. This setting, on an unknown model, is in a transitional style hinting at the baroque.
EMP0962 Croce, Giovanni Cantate Domino canticum novum
SATB Motet general, General Use £3.00
A transposed version a fourth higher than the original, ideal for modern mixed choirs.
EMP0571 Croce, Giovanni Exaudi Deus
SATB Introitus, Lent £2.50
A lovely little piece, which has become a favourite. The text (from Psalm 54) was frequently sung as part of the Introit or at the Communion: Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication. Attend unto me, and hear me. Available separately or in 'Three motets for four voices'.
