Graduale
Arcadelt. Jacques, Haec dies EMP0525 £2.00
SATB Scoring legend Easter ISMN M-2056-0525-4
This is one of only 24 Latin sacred motets by Arcadelt, who is better known for his over 120 chansons and 200 madrigals. But his output also includes three masses, Lamentations and Magnificat settings. Most of the motets are settings of liturgical texts: Haec dies is of course the Gradual on Easter Day. It is one of three motets printed in Moderne's anthology Motetti del fiore in 1532.
Lackner, Daniel, Haec est dies EMP0536 £2.00
SSATB Scoring legend Easter 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.
