Title: Cantate Domino a 12
Composer: Hans Leo Hassler
First published: 1601 in Sacri concentus. Reissued in 1612, no. 62
Description: This setting of Cantate Domino, scored for three four-part instrumental and vocal choirs (or for voices alone), is one of Hassler's most ambitious works offered. While certainly stylistically indebted to Gabrieli, the lighter textures of the vocal ensembles recall Orlando di Lasso and later Praetorius.
