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. Grandi’s Fourth Book of motets (1616), mainly smaller-scale pieces, contains works that can be linked to his two “academic” employers in Ferrara, the confraternity-academies of the Spirito Santo and the Morti. Like Grandi’s other prints, this book received multiple reprints, and some of its contents were copied as far away as north Germany and England. The present volume also contains major new biographical findings by Rodolfo Baroncini, and represents the first modern edition of most of the pieces.
    The series of publications will be edited by an editorial team headed by Jeffrey Kurtzman, in collaboration with Dennis Collins, Robert Kendrick, Steven Saunders, and John Whenham.

Jean Mouton is widely regarded as one of the most important composers contemporary with Josquin Des Prez. This volume contains two Masses discovered since Andrew C. Minor published thirteen such works to inaugurate the Complete Works edition, together with an independent Credo, nine Magnificats, and 25 chansons. Both Masses and six of the Magnificats appear in print here for the first time, while the chansons have never before been gathered together in one place. The extensive Critical Notes provide not only a complete collation of variants but also informative commentary on the sources, musical structure, and texts for each piece.

   The Liber misssarum  (Opus musicum III, 1618), contains six impressive settings of the Ordinary of the Mass for five, six, and eight voices. The double-choir masses are based on his own motets for Christmas, Easter, and St. Michael’s Day; a fourth mass on his “Benedicam Dominum” a 6; and two on motets by Stephano Felis and Jacob Meiland—all are included in the edition. Praetorius blends the older motet-style with the new concerto-style polychorality by his word declamation, short motives, repetition of sections, sequencing of  ideas, and varieties of choir exchange.
   All the masses exhibit imaginative reworking of the motet models and contain much newly composed music rather than simply adapting the mass text to the models. The six settings represent the last stage of complete polyphonic masses by German seventeenth-century composers (another set of five was published by Christoph Demantius in 1619).

The 28 motets for 3–6 voices published in 1542 by the Parisian printer Attaingnant form the core of this last volume in the Sermisy Opera Omnia sub-series. Appearing here in a critical edition for the first time are several of Sermisy’s more famous motets, works that were widely reprinted in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Equally noteworthy are Allaire’s comments on hexachordal transposition in these motets, which support his choices for musica ficta.

JACQUET DE MANTUA (Jachet de Mantua) (1483-1559), Opera omnia, edited by Philip T. Jackson and George Nugent, complete in 7 volumes. Vol.VII Motets for 3, 6, 7, & 8 Voices.

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.
