Singers around the world will be pleased to know that Edition Michael Procter is available again, following the sad death of Michael Procter in 2012. His large collection of sacred choral music by renaissance composers is a very valuable resource for choirs, churches and music lovers.

There are an estimated 850 pieces in the catalogue (including versions offered in different transpositions), mostly transcribed by Michael from original sources in libraries all over Europe. These will be verified and re-catalogued over the next few years.

Orders and enquiries are welcome now at info@edition-mp.com and will be produced and sold by Peacock Press.

SAATBB Scoring legend Marian Feasts - Sequence ISMN M-2056-0791-3
A revised edition of Josquin's famous piece, which provided the model for many parodies. Josquin probably took the idea from an anonymous English 3-voice setting (EMP0073 in my catalogue) which was based on the chant Sequence: this was in turn a contrafactum of a very early sequence for Holy Trinity, which probably derived from the even earlier jubilus of the Alleluia.

A magnificent mass, a parody on Josquin's celebrated setting of the Marian Sequence (also in EMP) in a new edition (replacing EMP 299 which lacked the Credo and has been withdrawn). Usually offered a tone higher than the original, but please ask for sample pages. The Tenor divides in the Benedictus, which is scored SAATT.
