Missa Beatae Mariae Virginis EMP0406 £5.80
SSTTBB Scoring legend Votive Mass BVM - Mass Ordinary ISMN M-2056-0406-6
A very beautiful alternatim Mass, here in the composer's revision for 6 voices, with the chant sections reconstructed from the Graduale Pataviense (Passau Gradual). The piece has been recorded by Hofkapelle with organ improvisations for the chant sections, together with the original 4-voice version sung with chant.
Missa Beatae Mariae Virginis EMP0608 £5.00

SATB and STTB Scoring legend Easter - Mass Ordinary ISMN M-2056-0485-1
An alternatim Mass, the chant to be improvised at the organ or sung choraliter - here again reconstructed from the Graduale Pataviense (Passau Gradual). Only in the Agnus is the second voice really a Tenor. The edition has been revised in 2006.

Ordinary of the mass.
Nativitatis Marie Officium EMP0753 £3.00
SATB Scoring legend Nativity BVM (September 8) - Mass Propers ISMN M-2056-0753-1
Mass propers from Choralis Constantinus: Introit - Gaudeamus omnes/Cum iocunditate, Alleluia - Nativitas Virginis, Communio - Diffusa est. The Introit poses a considerable puzzle as it offers dual texts, one of which is from the Office and has nothing to do with the Mass.
Nos autem (In Festo S. Crucis) EMP0111 £2.50
SATB Scoring legend Invention of Holy Cross (May 3) - Mass Propers (Manuscript edition) ISMN M-2056-0111-9

O regina nobilissima EMP0752 £5.00
SATTBaB Scoring legend Marian Feasts ISMN M-2056-0752-4
A contrafactum or, arguably, the original version, of Isaac's Angeli Archangeli. The use of the Comme femme descomfortee theme as cantus firmus has led to the suggestion that this piece is indeed the original. A magnificent piece, some 6 minutes in length.
Regina celi EMP0112 £3.00
SSATB Scoring legend Easter - Marian Antiphon (Manuscript edition) ISMN M-2056-0112-6
Salve sancta parens (Commune Festorum BMV) EMP0115 No longer available

Salve sancta parens a6 EMP0114 £2.00
SSATTB Scoring legend Marian Feasts - Introitus ISMN M-2056-0114-10
Magnificent 6-part Introit, probably from the Imperial Hofkapelle of Maximilian, and most likely intended for Nativity BVM.
Sancti spiritus (Reichstag, Konstanz 1507) EMP0116 £4.00
SATB Scoring legend Occasional piece (Manuscript edition) ISMN M-2056-0116-4
One of two motets (the other was Virgo prudentissima) composed by Isaac for the Reichstag summoned by Maximilian at Constance in 1507 to confirm his title as Emperor. This edition with reconstructed text was compiled from the two surviving manuscript sources.
Victimae paschali laudes EMP0117 £2.00
SSATBB Scoring legend Easter - Sequence (Manuscript edition) ISMN M-2056-0117-1
Virgo prudentissima EMP0118 £4.00
SSATBB Scoring legend Occasional piece ISMN M-2056-0118-8
The famous 'Kaisermotette' for the Reichstag in Konstanz, 1507. Michael Procter considers this to be a contrafactum of a lost original setting of the liturgical text, which is the Magnificat Antiphon for the Assumption. The Missa Virgo Prudentissima, thought to have been performed in Innsbruck in 1503, was then a parody on the lost original. The Kaisermotette itself was retexted again in 1558 in honour of Maximilian's grandson Karl V, with the text 'Christus Filius Dei': this version is also available on request. Instrumental parts for the typical 'Maximilian scoring' with cornetti and trombones are also available.
This item is also presented as:
EMP1676 Set of parts
