Four choirs Scoring legend
Croce, Giovanni, Missa super Jubilate Deo EMP0751 £18.00
General Use - Mass Ordinary ISMN M-2056-0751-7
This only four-choir mass by Croce was apparently written at the request of Archduke Ferdinand, later Emperor Ferdinand II, who met Croce while in Venice in 1598. A parody, whose source has not yet been identified, it is a magnificent piece whose ideal scoring would seem to be (I) a vocal choir SATB, (II) solo Alto/Tenor and three trombones, (III) solo Baritone and three higher instruments, the top one probably a cornett, (IV) solo Alto and three low instruments such as curtal/dulcian. However, all but the highest and lowest parts are capable of being sung, and our edition provides underlay for all parts. Performing material available includes full score, chorus scores and single voice/instrument parts: please ask for details. The price quoted is for the full score

Gabrieli, Giovanni, Exaudi me Domine a 16 (1615) EMP1274 £5.00
Office of the Dead - Respond ISMN M-2056-1274-10
A remarkable piece of late Renaissance polychoral writing, with extraordinary use of the madrigalian 'sospiri' figure. Denis Arnold wrote of its 'polyphonic web full of rich dissonance and ending with a grand plagal cadence.' It is a setting of a variant of the 'Libera me', presumably composed for the death of a prominent person, perhaps Doge Grimani (+ 1605). Scored for four vocal choirs, SATB SATB ATTB ATTB but obviously instruments may double or substitute for voices.
