JACQUET DE MANTUA (Jachet de Mantua) (1483-1559), Opera omnia, edited by Philip T. Jackson and George Nugent, complete in 7 volumes.
Jacquet (Jachet) de Mantua, active between Josquin and Palestrina, was considered a leading master of sacred polyphonic composition by his contemporaries, but he is also sometimes confused with Jacquet de Berchem.  This collection of the remaining 9 motets for 3 voices, 4 for 6 voices, 1 each for 7 and 8 voices from the first half 16th century form a smaller sub-repertoire of works that were not written in the dominant scoring at the time, that for 4 or 5 voices.

With the publication of this volume, the series is now complete with 7 volumes.

The 6 parody masses, Magnificat, 4 motets, and untexted chanson in this volume complete the publication of the works of this composer of Spanish origin.

The publication of these 52 motets in two volumes helps to complete our picture of the voluminous musical legacy of Flemish composer Heinrich Isaac (1450-1517). Many of these works are published here in modern notation for the first time. Although these motets are not commonly known today, they were widely circulated in Isaac’s time. Some appeared in editions printed by Petrucci as early as 1506, and others appeared in volumes printed by Rhao, Petreius, and Montanus & Nauber. Some of these motets only appeared in manuscripts such as Berlin MS 40021 or the Regensburg collection of manuscripts from 1570-80. Under the supervision of Isaac’s student Ludwig Senfl, many of these motets were copied or printed well into the sixteenth century.

Although Isaac is perhaps best known for his monumental collection of Mass Ordinary and Proper motets, the Choralis Constantinus, these isolated motets, although fewer in number, are no less important in allowing us to view and judge his compositional mastery. Their texts range from the strictly liturgical to the spiritual Leise to Latin aphoristic poems in hexameter. This diversity points to their wide use both within and outside of the traditional liturgy. As such, they provide us with a much broader view of Isaac’s musical world.

Alessandro Grandi (ca. 1586–1630) is best known as the first composer to use a form of the word “cantata” to describe a set of musical compositions (for his Cantade et arie, ca. 1618) and as Monteverdi’s vice-maestro di cappella at San Marco in Venice during the 1620s. His first published music, the Primo libro de motetti a due, tre, quattro, cinque, & otto voci, con una Messa à quattro (Venice, 1610), contains two fairly conventional compositions, a polychoral motet and a four-voice setting of the Ordinary of the Mass. The core of the collection, however, is a set of innovative few-voice motets in which Grandi introduces a variety of novel formal schemes and compositional techniques. He juxtaposes short motives in ways that suggest both dialogue techniques and the concerato interplay of voices common in the lighter secular genres. Several motets employ parlante subjects that recall the clipped diction of Monterverdi’s fourth and fifth book of madrigals, and Grandi’s quasi-canonic entries built over harmonic sequences evoke duet passages from the continuo madrigals that close Monteverdi’s Fifth Book. In short, Grandi’s Primo libro de motetti shows that he helped to forge the concertato style in the early years of the seventeenth-century.

This new series of publications will be edited by an editorial team headed by Jeffrey Kurtzman, in collaboration with Dennis Collins, Robert Kendrick, and Steven Saunders.
