General Use - Mass Ordinary ISMN M-2056-1250-4

Jacob (Jacques) Senleches, La harpe de melodie EMP0600 £2.00
Secular ISMN M-2056-0600-8
One of the best-known pieces from the late 14th century repertoire. It has two high voices in canon (with extremely difficult rhythms) and a bass. In this edition I have texted the third voice, but this could equally well be played.
Jacopo da Bologna, Aquil'altera - Creatura gentile -Uccel di Dio EMP0599 £2.00
Secular ISMN M-2056-0599-5
An unusually early piece for our catalogue, this is a 'madrigal' for three voices (I suggest TTB but SSA is equally valid.)
