Description:
The Bavarian State Library (Bayerische Staats Bibliothek in Munich, Germany) has a unique collection of large folio format choirbooks from the Bavarian court music ensemble, predominantly from the time of Orlando di Lasso serving as court music director. Several splendidly illustrated choir books originally belonged to the personal collection of the Bavarian dukes. The most beautiful one is the collection of motets by Cipriano de Rore for Duke Albrecht V, also available at Donemus. Choirbooks have all the parts on two facing pages, in contrast to the separate books for each voice that we see mostly in Renaissance editions. So a page turn had to come at the same moment for all the voices.
The original choirbook from 1573, without a title (BSB-Hss Mus.ms. 3936), contains 5 motets and 1 Mass, all reflecting on the Cross. One motet (O lampas ardens, by Jacquet de Mantua) is for St. Anthony, so not fitting in this particular book about the Cross; and besides it was was missing 4 pages in the choirbook. So I omitted it here. All the pieces are to be sung in the Holy Week or on September 14, the Exaltation of the Cross. The Motet Dulce melos is an ancient Sequentia, that is gone obsolete these days.
