Filipe de Magalhães (c. 1571-1652): Missa Si ignoras te (SATB)

The third Mass of the Missarum liber cum antiphonis (Lisbon, 1636) by Filipe de Magalhães (c. 1571-1652) is based on the five-voice motet Si ignoras te by Christian Hollander (c. 1512-1569), which was published in 1554, more than 80 years before (our edition of Si ignoras te can be purchased here). This Mass is rather unusual as it reduces the voices of the original model (like Gombert in the Missa Media vita).

Duarte Lobo (c. 1565-1646): Missa Sancta Maria (SATB)

The Missa Sancta Maria is the second Mass of the first book of Masses (Liber missarum IIII. V. VI. et VIII. vocibus, Antwerp, 1621) by the Portuguese Renaissance composer Duarte Lobo (c. 1565-1646). This Mass is based on the homonym motet by the Spanish composer Francisco Guerrero (1528-1599), the most admired Spanish composer of his generation. 

The Agnus Dei is the perfect sample of Duarte Lobo's genius. Scored for six voices, the riddle in the Cantus (and the Tenor with a canon at the octave down) with the words per aliam reversi sunt means that the six-note ostinato has to be sung alternatively from left to right (A-G-A-C-B-A) and backwards with the intervals inverted (A-G-F-A-B-A).

Manuel Cardoso (1566-1650): Missa Miserere mihi Domine (SSATTB)

We are proud to release our first edition from our series dedicated to the so-called Golden Age of Portuguese Renaissance Music. 

The six-voice Missa Miserere mihi Domine by Manuel Cardoso (1566-1650), included in his first printed book of Masses (Missae quaternis, quinis, et sex vocibus. Liber primus, Lisbon, 1625), is a Mass with a Cantus firmus (a very old-fashioned style in 1625) that is usually placed on the Superius I, but also on the Altus, Tenor and even the Bassus in the Christe.

The Agnus Dei ends with an enigmatic and virtuosistic canon typical of Cardoso. The indication Tenor II in dyapason, Altus in dyatesaron bis dicens Cantum Gregorianum is given to us, placed in the Superius I, which means that while the Tenor II sings strictly the same melody of the Superius I at the octave lower, the Altus has to sing only the Breves at the fourth, which together form exactly the melody of the Cantus firmus Miserere mihi Domine.
