Julije Skjavetić (fl. 1562-1565): Motetti a cinque et a sei voci (1564)

We are proud to announce the release of the complete edition of the Motetti a cinque et a sei voci by the Croatian Renaissance composer Julije Skjavetić (fl. 1562-1565).

Born in Šibenik, Julije Skjavetić (whose name is italianized in the printed publication as Giulio Schiavetto) probably served Girolamo Savorgnano, Bishop of Šibenik (1523–91), to whom he dedicated some of his works.  

The Motetti a cinque et a sei voci was published in Venice in 1564 by Girolamo Scotto. It contains 18 motets, 12 for five voices and 6 for six voices. Some highlights of this collection are the motets with an ostinato cantus firmus, like Cantantibus organis (dedicated to Saint Cecilia) or the outstanding six-voice Suscipe verbum Virgo Maria, where the Sexta pars (Cantus 2) sings as an ostinato the incipit of the Ave Maria plainchant. 

Furthermore, the skill of Skjavetić is shown in motets with canons such as the five-voice Asperges me or the impressive Da pacem Domine, which contains a 4 in 1 canon.
