This attractive piece from Croce's Cantiones Sacrae is also preserved in a manuscript in the library of the Basilica di San Marco in Venice, now kept at the Fondazione Levi.

Josquin des Pres, Miserere mei Deus EMP0533 £5.00
Penitential - Psalm ISMN M-2056-0533-9
One of the most celebrated of Josquin's pieces, imitated by many composers. The Tenor sings throughout the piece the single phrase 'Miserere mei Deus,' rising one step for 'De-'. This is repeated 21 times, on each step of the scale down and up and down again, after each verse of the psalm. The piece lasts about 14 minutes and is not to be undertaken lightly!
