EMP0968 Croce, Giovanni Lamentations B (Good Friday)
SATB Lesson (Lesung), Good Friday (Karfreitag) £4.00
The set of three Lectiones from the Lamentations for Good Friday, from Croce's first set of Lamentations 1603.
EMP0688 Dagneaux, Pierre Missa Vox exultationis
SATB Mass Ordinary, General Use £6.00
One of three French masses added to our catalogue in summer 2006. No other music by Dagneaux is known, and the only information on him is provided by the preface to the original print of this mass in 1666. He was director of music at the church of St. Magloire at Pontorson, Brittany.This setting, based on an unidentified motet, is obviously of the early baroque. It is written almost entirely in quavers and semiquavers and with experimental chromaticisms.
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.

SATB Motet general, Conception of BVM (December 8) £4.00

SATB Mass Propers, Feasts of Apostles £6.00

Mass propers from Choralis Constantinus: Introit - Gaudeamus omnes/Cum iocunditate, Alleluia - Nativitas Virginis, Communio - Diffusa est. The Introit poses a considerable puzzle as it offers dual texts, one of which is from the Office and has nothing to do with the Mass.
