Sebastián de Vivanco (c. 1551-1622): Missa In manus tuas (SATB+SATB)

We are glad to announce the release of our edition of the Missa In manus tuas by Sebastián de Vivanco. This eight-voice Mass is the most ambitious work of the Liber missarum, published in Salamanca in 1608. The Missa In manus tuas is based on the homonym plainchant, and it alternates sections of beautiful eight-voice counterpoint (with even a canon in the Kyrie) with other ones with double-choir dialogues.

Pietro Paolo Paciotto (c. 1553-after 1611): Missa Si bona suscepimus (SATTB)

A five-voice Mass by the Italian composer Pietro Paolo Paciotto, published in his Missarum liber primus (Rome, 1591). The Mass is based on the famous motet Si bona suscepimus by Philippe Verdelot (c. 1480-c. 1530), published more than sixty years before (it also inspired the six-voice Mass by Cristóbal de Morales in his Liber primus missarum of 1544). The final Agnus Dei is scored for six voices.

Dominique Phinot (c. 1510-c. 1556): Ecce tu pulcher es (SATTB)

We want to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia by publishing the motet Ecce tu pulcher es by Dominique Phinot (c. 1510-c. 1556). According to the physician and philosopher Girolamo Cardano in his Theonoston, Phinot was "executed for homosexual practices". 

The five-voice Ecce tu pulcher es takes its text from a part of the Song of Songs, which praises the pulchritude of the lover. What makes this work even more interesting is the fact that Phinot changes the original text from the Bible "sicut lilium inter spinas sic amica inter filias" to "sicut lilium inter spinas sic dilectus meus inter filios", that is, from the female lover to a male lover.

Francesco Corteccia (1502-1571): O Paule Ursine (SSATTB)

The eighth motet of the Canticorum liber primus cum sex vocibus (Venice, 1571) by Francesco Corteccia was dedicated to Paolo Orsini, an Italian nobleman who married (and presumably killed) Isabella de Medici. The Quintus sings the words Uxor tua sicut vitis abundans in lateribus domus tuae. Filii tui sicut novelle olivarum in circuiti mensae tuae ("Thy wife shall be as the fruitful vine: upon the walls of thine house. Thy children like the olive-branches: round about thy table").

Pedro Rimonte (1565-1627): Missa Ave virgo sanctissima (SSATB)

Rimonte published in his Missae sex (1604) one of the Masses (perhaps the most beautiful one) based on the famous motet by Francisco Guerrero (we have already edited the other ones that were published by Gery de Ghersem in 1598 and Juan Esquivel in 1608). The canon in unisono between the two Cantus in the original motet is also here, and Rimonte adds a beautiful Trium in unum canon (3 in 1 canon) in the Pleni sunt caeli and a six-voice Agnus Dei III.
