Recently reissued pieces, ordered by composer
Cosset, Francois (c.1610 - 1664)
newMissa Exultate Deo EMP0686 £4.00
SATB Scoring legend General Use - Mass Ordinary ISMN M-2056-0686-2
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.
This item is included in:
EMP1014 Three French Masses
Dagneaux, Pierre (fl. around 1666)
newMissa Vox exultationis EMP0688 £5.00
SATB Scoring legend General Use - Mass Ordinary ISMN M-2056-0688-6
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.

EMP1014 Three French Masses
de Bournonville, Jean (c.1585 - 1632)
newMissa Ave maris stella EMP0687 £3.75
SATB Scoring legend General Use - Mass Ordinary ISMN M-2056-0687-9
One of three French masses added to our catalogue in summer 2006. De Bournonville worked mainly in Amiens, but near the end of his life was appointed to the Sainte Chapelle, an appointment reflecting the high regrad in which he was held. His masses are counted among the best of the period. This setting, a paraphrase mass on the Marian Vesper hymn, is lovely. At present the Credo is not included, due to limited time with the source, but it will be added as soon as possible.

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.
