MATB Scoring legend
Croce, Giovanni, Cantate Domino canticum novum EMP0647 £2.00
General Use - Motet general ISMN M-2056-0647-3
A simple but effective setting of verses from Ps. 95, from Croce's 4-part motets of 1597. The collection was obviously intended for 'normal' church choirs, such as the parish choir at S. Maria Formosa, where Croce was a priest. The scorings are mostly 'ad aequales', i.e. in 'close-together' clefs allowing for transposition up or down according to the singers available.
