EMP0722 Croce, Giovanni Missa Decantabat populus
SATB SATB Mass Ordinary, General Use £8.70
One of the three double-choir masses of Croce published in 1596 and presumably composed in the first instance for St Mark's. This simple but effective setting is a parody on Croce's own motet of 1594. Here printed without the 'Partidura' continuo/director's short score which is included in the Quatercentenary Edition Volume II. A version including the Partidura is also available.

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.
EMP1242 Hassler, Hans Leo Missa II (Missa secunda)
SATB Mass Ordinary, Eucharist £5.00
One of the better-known the masses of Hassler. A high-clef piece usually offered, as here, a third lower than notated.

SSSA General Use £7.90
One of the masses composed for the chapel of the Gonzagas in Mantua between 1568 and 1579. Unlike the other settings, this Mass is through-composed, and it is the only one for 'equal voices'. This version is for high voices SSSA.
EMP0951 Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da Missa Mantovana (Missa sine nomine)

One of the masses composed for the chapel of the Gonzagas in Mantua between 1568 and 1579. Unlike the other settings, this Mass is through-composed, and it is the only one for 'equal voices'. This version is at the original pitch for male voices AAAT.

EMP0320 Willaert, Adrian Missa Mente tota (without Credo)
ATTBaBB Mass Ordinary, General Use £8.70

EMP0777 Gabrieli, Andrea Missa Ove ch’i posi
SAATTB Mass Ordinary, General Use £9.50
A further lovely mass from Gabrieli’s Primus Liber. Its model is a madrigal by Willaert (printed in the edition but also available separately from Edition Michael Procter), with which it shares the unusual scoring. In the Agnus a canon requires a third Alto. This version is transposed down a third from the original.
EMP0948 Gabrieli, Andrea Missa Ove ch’i posi
SAATTB Mass Ordinary, General Use £9.50
A further lovely mass from Gabrieli’s Primus Liber. Its model is a madrigal by Willaert (printed in the edition but also available separately from Edition Michael Procter), with which it shares the unusual scoring. In the Agnus a canon requires a third Alto. This version is transposed down a tone from the original.
EMP1116 Gabrieli, Andrea Missa Pater peccavi
SSATBB Mass Ordinary, General Use £9.50
A wonderful piece, which deserves to be as famous as the Papae Marcelli or the Byrd 'Four Part' masses. It has marvellous sonorities and is imbued throughout with the pathos of íts model, Gabrieli's own motet on the Prodigal Son. The unusual scoring, SSATBB, which is shared by some of the Penitential Psalms, makes the mass very useful for choirs short of tenors. This completely revised edition, which restores original note values, has been checked against the only complete set of original part books in the Staats- und Stadtbibliothek at Augsburg. It replaces our earlier edition EMP 285.
EMP0329 Croce, Giovanni Missa Percussit Saul mille
SATB SATB bc Mass Ordinary, General Use £9.50

SSATTBB Mass Ordinary, Holy Trinity £7.10
A magnificent setting based on Josquin's motet (A Mary Sequence) The work was composed for Duke Ercole II of Ferrara, and in the only surviving source (Munich Mus MS 46) one voice sings throughout the mass the text 'Hercules Secundus Dux Ferrariae Quartus vivit et vivet.' In this version prepared for liturgical performance in San Marco, Venice, alternative texts were supplied, either setting sections of the Ordinary or using a new text in honour of Holy Trinity. The work is offered here without the Credo, which was not sung in San Marco.
EMP0699 Croce, Giovanni Missa Prima sexti toni
SATTB Mass Ordinary £6.00

EMP0949 Baccusi, Ippolito Missa Quel Rossignuol

EMP1078 Monteverdi, Claudio Missa Sanctissimae Virgini (Missa In illo tempore)
SSATTB Mass Ordinary, Marian Feasts £11.10
A completely new edition replacing the Beauchamp Press version which we took over in 2008. This magnificent setting was the principal work in Monteverdi's 1610 collection which also included the famous Vespers. Based on melodic material from Gombert's 'In illo tempore' the work originally bore the title 'Missa Sanctissimae Virgini'. One of the grandest and most luscious of Monteverdi's works, it deserves to be as well-known as Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli or the Byrd 4-voice Mass. This version is at the original high pitch (only suitable for instruments).
EMP1079 Monteverdi, Claudio Missa Sanctissimae Virgini (Missa In illo tempore)
SSATTB Mass Ordinary, Marian Feasts £11.10
A completely new edition replacing the Beauchamp Press version which we took over in 2008.

This magnificent setting was the principal work in Monteverdi's 1610 collection which also included the famous Vespers. Based on melodic material from Gombert's 'In illo tempore' the work originally bore the title 'Missa Sanctissimae Virgini'. One of the grandest and most luscious of Monteverdi's works, it deserves to be as well-known as Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli or the Byrd 4-voice Mass. This version is transposed down a third (in 'A').
EMP0663 Croce, Giovanni Missa Secunda tertii toni
TrMAABa Mass Ordinary £6.30
The second of three short masses for five voices published in 1596, which were reprinted together with a fourth, for 6 voices, in 1599. This is our standard version, a 4th below the original pitch
EMP1018 Croce, Giovanni Missa Secunda tertii toni
TrMAABa Mass Ordinary £6.30
The second of three short masses for five voices published in 1596, which were reprinted together with a fourth, for 6 voices, in 1599. Here a 3rd below the original pitch
EMP1019 Croce, Giovanni Missa Secunda tertii toni

EMP0745 Croce, Giovanni Missa Sopra la Battaglia
SATB ATTB Mass Ordinary, General Use £7.90
One of the three masses for double choir. Like the Missa Percussit Saul mille, this setting was probably composed to be sung on the anniversary of a military victory. It is of course a parody on Janequin's famous piece. In this version the mass is presented without the 'Partidura' organ part.
EMP0697 Croce, Giovanni Missa Tertia octavi toni
SATTB Mass Ordinary £6.30
The third of the short masses for five voices published in 1596, which were reprinted together with a fourth, for 6 voices, in 1599.
EMP0393 Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da Missa Ut Re Mi Fa
SSATTB Mass Ordinary, General Use £9.50
This mass, together with the Missa BMV, forms the 6-part section of Palestrina's Third Book of masses for 4, 5 and 6 voices (1570). There exists a manuscript in the library of the Sistine Chapel, giving the date as 1563, so we may suppose the mass to date from Palestrina's return, after his difficult years at S. John Lateran, to S. Maria Maggiore. As well as being unusually scored - for SSAATB - it is his only Hexachord Mass, and displays his considerable gifts: the second Superius sings only the cantus firmus, ascending and descending, either in the natural or the hard hexachord, but in an enormously varied and varying series of rhythms. In the final Agnus a third Alto sings in canon a fifth below the second Superius. The edition has now been revised and includes the Credo. Here a 4th lower than the high-clef original.
EMP1024 Palestrina, Giovanni Pierluigi da Missa Ut Re Mi Fa
SSATTB Mass Ordinary, General Use £9.50

In the final Agnus a third Alto sings in canon a fifth below the second Superius. The edition has now been revised and includes the Credo. Given here a tone lower than the high-clef original.
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.
EMP0411 de la Rue, Pierre Missa pro Defunctis
SATB Mass Ordinary, Requiem £6.30
The famous Requiem which is scored in abysmally low clefs (including Gamma-3). It is here offered at the correct transposition, which works out at SATB pitch, but is also available at the original pitch.
EMP0583 de la Rue, Pierre Missa pro Defunctis
various Mass Propers, Requiem £6.00
Although the original cleffing clearly indicates transposition, we also offer the work here at original pitch. Some movements are in normal (SATB) clefs, while others use the rare Gamma-3 clef taking the lowest Bass voice down to bottom Bflat.
