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.
EMP0787 Willaert, Adrian Ove ch’i posi gli occhi

EMP1009 Croce, Giovanni Percussit Saul mille
SATB SATB Respond, Sunday after Pentecost £9.75
This version is a fourth lower than the high-clef original, ideal for performance with cornetts and sackbuts. A text found in no other setting, its belligerent - indeed pugnacious - character makes it apparent that it was written either for the annual Lepanto commemoration, or - most likely - to celebrate the Habsburg victory at Sisak in 1593. The source collection, Croce's first book of double-choir motets of 1594, was dedicated to Raimondo Della Torre, the Ambassador to Venice of the Holy Roman Empire. Here offered as a set of parts (each choir consisting of cornett, 2 sackbuts and bass sackbut or curtal/dulcian) to be played with the voices.

EMP1296 Gabrieli, Giovanni Quis est iste a 10
TrSMAT ATBaBB Non-liturgical £6.00
The piece was conceived for two groups, each with a solo voice and instruments. Thus, the high choir (Secundus Chorus) would probably have had a solo Tenor and four high instruments (strings or cornets); the low choir (called ‘Primus Chorus’ because it sings first) a solo Altus (countertenor) and four low instruments, probably trombones, with a bass trombone or curtal on the lowest part. The Basso per l’organo was not included in the original print, the source is a manuscript partbook in Augsburg written out in 1636, which includes the 1587 Concerti as well as the 1597 collection. It combines text from Isaiah 63 and Psalm 24, and was possibly composed for an extra-liturgical celebration in connection with the Feast of the Precious Blood (July 1).
