Orlando di Lasso was the most famous and most popular composer of the second half of the 1500s. This book of essays written by leading scholars from Europe and the United States is the first full-length survey in English of a broad spectrum of Lasso's music. The essays discuss his large and varied output with regard to structure, expressive qualities, liturgical aspects, and its use as a model by other composers, focusing in turn on his Magnificat settings, masses, motets, hymns, and madrigals
Motets from Quinque et sex vocibus perornatae sacrae cantiones (Venice, 1565) ; Motets for five to eight voices from Sacrae cantiones, liber secundus, tertius, quartus (Venice, 1566) by Orlando di Lasso( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume includes twenty-six Lasso motets for five, six, and eight voices first published in Venice in Girolamo Scotto's Sacrae cantiones of 1565 and Antonio Gardano's Orlandi Lassi Sacrae Cantiones, books 2, 3, and 4. Lasso's settings of Italian texts had been frequently published in Italy since 1555, but his motets were not printed there (or almost anywhere else) until the 1560s. Gardano and his successors eventually published eight numbered books of Lasso motets, but these three and Scotto's book are the only ones that contain a significant number of first editions. The increase in length of some of the motets in the French books of 1564 and 1565 (CM 4) is seen in the Italian books as well, with extended gospel settings such as "Missus est Angelus Gabriel," "In principio erat Verbum," and "Cum natus esset Jesus." The hymn-motets "Jesu, corona virginum" and "Vexilla regis prodeunt" are similarly expansive. The setting of Savonarola's meditation on Psalm 50, "Infelix ego," is especially expressive. The ascription to Lasso of two motets in this volume, "Zachaee, festinans descende" and "Gloria Patri," is questionable." --
Motets from printed anthologies and manuscripts, 1570-1579 by Orlando di Lasso( )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2019 in Latin and English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thirty-one motets first published in printed anthologies or copied into manuscripts between 1570 and 1579 appear in this volume. Le Roy and Ballard working in Paris included over half of them in their collections of Lasso's motets and chansons; the others appear in choirbooks from the Bavarian Hofkapelle and in the 1579 expanded reissue in Nuremberg of Gerlach's Selectissimae cantiones. The proportion of secular texts in this volume is less than in CM 17; most of them are ceremonial or love poetry. Among them is "Anna, mihi dilecta," a strikingly chromatic piece that might date from a time earlier than its 1579 publication. The religious texts include Lasso's longest motet, a six-voice cantus firmus setting of the sequence "Lauda Sion Salvatorem." Other motets in the volume call for large ensembles of seven, eight, nine, ten, or twelve voices. The five-voice "Domine Jesu Christe, qui cognoscis" is the motet that won for Lasso the first prize in the initial Puy d'Evreux in 1575." --
Motets for six voices from Primus liber concentuum sacrorum ; Motets for four to ten voices from Modulorum secundum volumen by Orlando di Lasso( )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The firm of Adrian Le Roy and Robert Ballard in Paris was by far the most prolific publisher of Lasso's music in his lifetime. From 1559 on they included his music in their chanson books, but their first publication devoted entirely to Lasso was the Primus liber concentuum sacrorum of 1564 for five and six voices, followed in 1565 by the Modulorum . . .4-10 vocum secundum volumen. Most of the 1564 book was reprinted from Lasso's 1556 and 1562 motet books, but it included three first editions, and twenty-one of the twenty-five motets in the 1565 book were new. With only a few exceptions, the texts of these motets are sacred, many from psalms or psalm verses, including "Laudate Dominum de caelis," the setting of Psalms 148 and 150 that also concludes Lasso's cycle of the Penitential Psalms. In "Laudate Dominum" and two other pieces in this volume, Lasso produced motets that are more than twice as long as any he had previously composed. These grand pieces contrast with intimate music such as the expressive setting of "Tristis est anima mea."" --
Liber mottetarum trium vocum ; Novae aliquot, ad duas voces cantiones by Orlando di Lasso( )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among Lasso's best known and most widely circulated works are two sets of motets that were composed explicitly for recreational and didactic purposes. Adam Berg published the Liber motettarum trium vocum in 1575, and then he added three more trios to the original fifteen in a 1577 reissue. The Novae aliquot, ad duas voces cantiones, which appeared in 1577, contains twelve texted and twelve textless duos; the latter may be the only instrumental music that Lasso ever wrote, though vocal performance is also possible. The mainly religious texts in both books were presumably chosen largely to provide edification along with recreation or instruction. The three-voice motets might also be used as service music." --
The four-language print : for four and eight voices (Munich, 1573) by Orlando di Lasso( )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume departs from the usual practice of the series in including Lasso's settings of some vernacular texts in addition to motets. Adam Berg issued the so-called "Four-Language Print" in 1573; it contains six Latin motets, six German lieder, six French chansons, and six Italian madrigals, all for four voices, and one eight-voice dialogue in each of the four languages. This edition publishes the collection integrally for the first time. The four-voice compositions are concise, containing representative examples of Lasso's best work in each language. Five of the madrigals form a cycle drawn from Ariosto's Orlando Furioso. The eight-voice motet, "Unde revertimini," is said to have been performed with another text, "Unde recens reditus," at the French court. An attempted reconstruction of "Unde recens reditus" is an appendix to this volume, and it indicates strongly that "Unde revertimini" is the text to which the music was originally composed." --
