Description:
The masses are all parody masses, which means that an earlier work - sacred or profane - was the basis for the new music. In those days this was no plagiarism. It was an homage to the maker of the earlier work. All the masses are based on motets by Guerrero, except O Rex gloriæ; this was a motet by Palestrina.
Because of this I have added the preposition supra in the titles of the masses, though it was not in the original titles. In later literature the mass Maria Magdalena is often spelled as Maria Magdalene; this must be wrong because the mass is a parody on the motet Maria Magdalena et altera Maria by Guerrero.
Presented here in 2 volumes are 6 masses and 7 motets from a printed choirbook of the Toledo cathedral, and scanned to the internet by the Répertoire International de Sources Musicales. The scans on the internet have a watermark of the Vatican Library. It was printed in Madrid in 1602 by Johannes Flandrum as Liber Primus Missarum (RISM L2588 - First Book of Masses). Flandrum was a Fleming working at the Spanish royal court.
