Pearsall, Robert Lucas, Salve Regina EMP1105 £2.00
SATB Scoring legend Marian Antiphon ISMN M-2056-1105-7
A modern edition of a work published in 1856 and thus from the final year of Pearsall's life. He was received into the Roman Catholic church three days before his death, at the beginning of August 1856.
Rivafrecha, Martin de (Rivaflecha), Salve regina EMP1108 £3.00
SATB Scoring legend Marian Antiphon ISMN M-2056-1108-8
A new and revised edition which replaces our earlier one. Only five pieces by Rivafrecha are known to have survived, all in the same manuscript in Seville. The composer was rated alongside Penalosa during his lifetime, and this piece is stunning. It is an alternatim setting, and I am grateful to Bruno Turner for providing me with a source of the chant known to the composer, which is incorporated in the edition.
Victoria, Tomas Luis de, Salve Regina EMP0315 £5.90
SSAT SATB Scoring legend Marian Antiphon ISMN M-2056-0315-1
Victoria wrote no secular music. His 'love music', which in another composer would have been given expression in madrigals, is all in the Marian music to which he devoted so much care. Victoria left no less than four settings of the Salve Regina, of which this is the largest-scale. Revised edition with original note values restored.
