Missa "Salve Regina" (Christoph Dalitz, 2008)

Ambitious mass setting in a 16th century style, which is based on the medieval gregorian chant "Salve Regina". The applied stylistic means might be somewhat subtle for a casual listener, but are certainly of interest for someone acquinted with 16th century music.

Depending on the availabe forces you can sing the pieces with SAT (as written in G or -preferably- a second lower in F), SAB (a third lower in E) or with ATB (a fourth or fifth lower in D or C). To fit the piece for equal voices, a simple transposition is however insufficient. I have therefore additionally made an arrangement of this mass setting for women's choir or for men's choir.

This edition is written in G, even though the piece sounds better in F when sung with SAT. Please drop me an email if you need a transposed edition (also for ATB, e.g.).
