Orlando di Lasso's imitation magnificats for Counter-Reformation Munich by David Crook( )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 1,473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a section on compositional procedure, Crook explains that Lasso abandoned the traditional eight psalm-tone melodies in his imitation Magnificats, considers the new ways he found to represent the tones, and describes how Lasso's experimentation reflected the complex relationship between mode and tone in Renaissance theory and practice
Cantiones sacrae sex vocum : (Graz, 1594) by Orlando di Lasso( )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2019 in Latin and English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lasso's last motet book was published in Graz in 1594 by Georg Widmanstetter, a former employee of Adam Berg in Munich. In his dedicatory preface, dated 29 September 1593, we encounter the aged melancholic--vulnerable and alienated from a world he fears has already left behind both him and his music. Some of the motets also display a valedictory quality, notably "Prolongati sunt dies mei," "Deficiat in dolore vita mea," and "Recordare Jesu pie." Most of the texts are biblical or liturgical, but the book also includes a humorous tribute to the pleasures of drink, a sibylline chorus for a Jesuit drama, and the moving encomium to music, "Musica, Dei donum optimi." The first twenty-six motets in the book represent the eight modes in order, with mode 7 unusually represented by pieces with their finals on A. The last four motets in the book appear to have been added by Lasso or Widmanstetter after the main part of the book had already been set in type." --
Sacrae cantiones for four voices (Munich, 1585) by Orlando di Lasso( )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1585 Adam Berg published thirty-two Lasso motets under the title Sacrae cantiones, all for four voices except the eight-voice "Stabat Mater dolorosa" that concludes the volume. Except for this piece and two others, all the motets in this volume are settings of offertories for the Mass, and most of them appear in a large manuscript of 1581-83 that contains a cycle of Lasso's offertory settings for Advent and Lent. The manuscript presents its contents in calendrical order, but Sacrae cantiones groups its contents by tonal type (though not so as to represent the modes in order), and it does not indicate that its contents are mostly offertories. The motets are beautiful examples of Lasso's writing on a modest scale, except for the expansive "Stabat Mater dolorosa."" --
Cantica sacra sex et octo vocibus : (Munich, 1585) by Orlando di Lasso( )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adam Berg issued Lasso's Cantica sacra sex et octo vocibus almost simultaneously with the four-voice motets found in CM 14. The concluding eight-voice motet, "Omnia tempus habent," draws its dialogue structure from that of the text itself and includes abundant word-painting. The fifteen six-voice motets are each outstanding in this and other ways. Most set scriptural or liturgical texts, while "Huc ades, o Erneste" is in honor of the younger brother of Duke Wilhelm V of Bavaria. For the responsory "Angelus Domini descendit de caelo" Lasso later added three-voice settings of the verse and doxology. These are preserved in a manuscript and appear in this edition along with the original two-part motet. Two settings of psalm verses, "Memor esto verbi tui" and "Domine, da nobis auxilium," reveal something of the range of Lasso's approaches to text setting. The former is concise and illustrates its text vividly, while the latter unfolds in a more leisurely manner." --
