Hassler, Hans Leo, Congratulamini a 18 EMP1277 £5.80
a 18: see description Scoring legend Motet general ISMN M-2056-1277-1
This is the piece of Hassler's which requires the largest forces. It is scored for four groups made up as follows: TrSMA-SATB-SATTB-ATBaBSb. The second group is the Capella, i.e. the vocal choir; the third group is also in vocal clefs and could well be sung. The fourth group (actually called Primus Chorus, because it sings first) is surely for a solo Alto and four instruments, probably including a curtal or dulcian; the highest group (first in my list) could well include a solo Soprano singing the second line, and three instruments: the Tr clef part is either for Cornett or for Violin. The text is a variant of a Responsory sung (A) at the Vigil of Holy Innocents, (B) on Easter Monday, (C) on the Friday after Easter. The prominent ‘Alleluia’ suggests Eastertide use.
