General Information

Title: Cantate Domino a 12
Composer: Hans Leo Hassler

Number of voices: 12vv   Voicing: SSAT.SATB.ATBB
Genre: SacredMotet

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella, although parts in the high voice and low voice choirs may be doubled or substituted with cornetti &/or sackbuts

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.
