SAATB Scoring legend General Use (Manuscript edition) ISMN M-2056-0469-1
Ascendens Christus EMP0096 £2.00
SATB Scoring legend Ascension - Motet general ISMN M-2056-0096-9
A splendid piece with tricky rhythms, rather typical of Handl. The opening phrase 'Christ rising into heaven' covers a ninth in steps of a third, in each voice. A high-clef piece, usually offered down a minor third but of course available as required. Now available in Sibelius format.

SATTB Scoring legend St Lawrence (August 10) - Motet general ISMN M-2056-0613-8
An unusual text deriving from a pre-Tridentine Rite and found as far as we can establish only in this setting from Handl's Opus Musicum.

SSMA Scoring legend Feasts of Virgins - Respond ISMN M-2056-0420-2

Regnum mundi EMP0775 £2.00
SSTB Scoring legend Feasts of Virgins - Respond ISMN M-2056-0775-3
Now identified as a Respond (or Responsory) for Feasts of Virgins and Non-Virgins. The 'Ad aequales' scoring can be tranposed to suit different groups of voices. This version is SSTB.

SATB Scoring legend Feasts of Virgins - Respond ISMN M-2056-1106-4
Now identified as a Respond (or Responsory) for Feasts of Virgins and Non-Virgins. The piece is in an 'Ad aequales' scoring, i.e. it can be transposed to suit different groups of voices. This version is a fifth lower than the original and works well for SATB.
