EMP1222 Pedersøn, Mogens Ad te levavi
SSATB Psalm-Motet, Non-liturgical £3.00
One of the handful of Latin motets by Pedersøn, who studied with Giovanni Gabrieli in Venice. The music has much in common with the Cantiones Sacrae of Heinrich Schütz, with whom Pederson may have overlapped in Venice.

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.

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.
EMP0328 Anonymous Alma Redemptoris Mater
chant Marian Antiphon, Advent and Christmastide (until Purification) Chant notation (St. Meinrad) £2.50
This edition of the antiphon is a new transcription of the chant as given in the Hartker ms (St. Gall 390-391). It differs considerably from the official Vatican Edition (Antiphonale Monasticum) which claims to be based on the same source.

EMP1037 Merulo, Claudio Audi Domine hymnum
SAATTB Motet general, Dedication of a Church £3.00

EMP1095 Merulo, Claudio Ave Maria...O Mater Dei
SATTB Motet general, General Use £3.00
One of several new pieces by Merulo which we are publishing for the International Academy of Sacred Music 2010 in Venice. The text is an unusual variant of the standard one, mainly found in Italian uses, whose liturgical function seems to have been following the Pater noster before the Office: it was also set by Donato.
EMP0727 Croce, Giovanni Ave Virgo sponsa Dei
SATB ATTB Antiphon, Marian Feasts £4.00
EMP0321 Willaert, Adrian Ave maris stella
SAATTB Vesper Hymn, Marian Feasts £4.00

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.
EMP0582 Gabrieli, Andrea Beata es Maria
SATBaB Motet general, Marian Feasts £3.00
Our catalogue includes many pieces by Andrea Gabrieli, whom we consider the greatest 'unknown' composer of the Renaissance. There is as yet no complete edition, and our catalogue will gradually include more of his music. Beata es Maria is a beautiful piece and a good introduction to the emotional side of his style.
EMP0772 Gabrieli, Andrea Beata es Maria
SAATB Motet general, Marian Feasts £3.00
Alternative version, a third higher than the original.
EMP1294 Gabrieli, Giovanni Beata es virgo Maria
SSATBB Marian Feasts £4.00
The 6- and 7-voice a capella motets of Gabrieli are among his loveliest, but are usually overshadowed by the large-scale pieces for voices and instruments. We are publishing all the small-scale pieces.
EMP0516 Merulo, Claudio Beata viscera Mariae Virginis
SMATTB Communion, Marian Feasts £3.00
A beautiful setting of the familiar Marian piece, originally cleffed TrSMAABa. It is usually offered transposed down a tone or down a fourth.
EMP0526 Byrd, William Beati mundo corde
SSATB Communion, All Saints (November 1) £4.00

EMP0609 Byrd, William Beati mundo corde
SSATB Communion, All Saints (November 1) £4.00
