Lackner, Daniel, Haec est dies EMP0536 £2.00
SSATB Scoring legend Graduale ISMN M-2056-0536-10
A minor master of early Protestant music, Lackner was among the first recognised composers born in Styria. His music seems redolent of the Venetian influence as digested by Jakob Handl, with complex rhythmical counterpoint, contrary motion and quasi-homophony.
Lassus, Roland de (Orlandus Lassus, Orlando di Lasso), Angelus Domini EMP0486 £2.00
SSATTB Scoring legend Motet general ISMN M-2056-0486-8
A splendid Easter piece, typically combining a deep sense of the text and a madrigalistic approach to the words.
Lassus, Roland de (Orlandus Lassus, Orlando di Lasso), Christus resurgens EMP1082 £3.50
SSATB Scoring legend ISMN M-2056-1082-1
A magnificent miniature setting of the familiar Eastertide text. Although short, it contains some of Lassus' most striking writing, including bold harmonic devices for the words 'mors, mortuis,' and joyful runs in black notes at 'vivit Deo.' Judging by the final 'Alleluia' Lassus had in mind the Alleluia of Mass on the 5th Sunday of Easter. A new edition, a 4th below the high-clef original, which replaces EMP 0137.

A magnificent miniature setting of the familiar Eastertide text. Although short, it contains some of Lassus' most striking writing, including bold harmonic devices for the words 'mors, mortuis,' and joyful runs in black notes at 'vivit Deo.' Judging by the final 'Alleluia' Lassus had in mind the Alleluia of Mass on the 5th Sunday of Easter. A new edition which replaces EMP 0137. This version is a 3rd below the high-clef original, with the Altus in Treble clef.
