Il primo libro de mottetti a cinque et a sei voci (Antwerp, 1556) by Orlando di Lasso( )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Antwerp motet book of 1556 is Lasso's first publication that includes only his own motets, and it contributed greatly to the composer's renown. It includes five pieces addressed to exalted personages such as Antoine Perrenot de Granvelle, Archbishop of Arras; Reginald Pole, Archbishop of Canterbury; and the emperor Charles V. The other motets are on religious texts, among them "Gustate et videte," which continued to be used in Munich's Corpus Christi processions into the 1580s. Lasso oversaw the production of his new book during his brief residence in Antwerp, but he may have composed some of the pieces in Italy before 1555, especially those that appear to be modeled on settings of the same texts by earlier composers. Among them is the famous "Fremuit spiritus Jesu," in which Lasso set out to surpass the setting by Clemens in affective power." --

8 editions published between 2002 and 2019 in Latin and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lasso's first motet book after he took up residence in Munich was the Sacrae cantiones of 1562, twenty-five new motets for five voices, published in Nuremberg by Berg and Neuber. It was his most famous and influential motet collection, reprinted complete only five months later in Venice by Antonio Gardano and fourteen more times thereafter, in addition to many separate printings of individual pieces. Forty-seven instrumental adaptations of the Nuremberg motets are known to have been printed, and the motets were frequently cited by contemporary theorists, notably Joachim Burmeister, whose discussions of oratory in music in his Musica poetica (Rostock, 1606) draw on Lasso's Nuremberg motet book far more than on any other composer or source. All but one of the texts are scriptural or liturgical. The most famous motet in the collection is probably "In me transierunt irae tuae," which Burmeister uses to compare the construction of a motet to that of a speech by a persuasive orator." --
