QuoteOrlando de Lassus (also Orlando di Lasso, Orlandus Lassus, et al) was a composer of the late Renaissance, chief representative of the mature polyphonic style of the Franco-Flemish school, and considered to be one of the three most famous and influential musicians in Europe at the end of the 16th century. One of the most prolific, versatile, and universal composers of the late Renaissance, Lassus wrote over 2,000 works in all Latin, French, Italian and German vocal genres. These include 530 motets, over 400 Italian madrigals/French chansons/90 German lieder, 60 or so masses, 4 passions, penitential psalms; no instrumental music is known to exist and/or is lost.

Quote from: SonicMan46 on September 12, 2021, 08:43:12 AMOrlando di Lassus (1532-1594) - not much in my collection, i.e. the two shown previously and the 4 recordings before - not much at all considering his fame and output, outlined in the summary bio below (much more at the link). About done listening to these recordings which are all quite good to my ears - BUT, if others are worth a listen, please suggest; also there is likely much more I could add w/ a composer this prolific but space is always an issue, i.e. a couple of additions maybe?

Thanks again for your help. Dave
