Salve Regina - Score and parts composed by Johannes Ockeghem (1410-1497). For ATTB voices; or ATTB wind/string instruments. Miscellaneous Music. Choral or Vocal Music. Score and Parts. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.LPM0524).
This motet by Johannes Ockeghem (c. 1410-1497) is printed here after MS Chigiana C VIII 234 in the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana in Rome. This piece includes fleeting quotes from two of Ockeghem's own works: the opening quotes the opening motive of his Missa Mi-Mi, and the duple-time section quotes Fors seulement. The style of the music is typical of Ockeghem, with its long melismatic and flexible melodies and extremely restricted use of imitation. It is a kind of music that virtually disappeared after the composer's death, and one that could sound aimless in the hands of a less gifted composer. - BT.
