Gaspar van Weerbeke, Collected Works

The Gaspar van Weerbeke Edition makes accessible the complete music composed by or transmitted under the name of Gaspar van Weerbeke, and who worked for the chapel in Milan and other major institutions at the end of the fifteenth century. Weerbeke's name is especially connected with a peculiar Milanese motet style whose origin has been discussed for decades and has been challenged recently by new insights connected with research on his colleague Josquin Des Prez. This edition offers new material for comparisons with the music of others contemporary composers that will help answer questions of personal and local style and about the history of specific genres.

Helping to broaden our understanding of the development and the richness of these kinds of compositions, the edition offers a new overview on the print and manuscript transmission of Weerbeke's motets and provides the basis for further analytical studies and a new hypothesis about his music. Performers now have access to new music that is especially representative of the variety of motet styles available at the end of the fifteenth century.

GASPAR VAN WEERBEKE, Collected Works, edited by Gerhard Croll, Eric F. Fiedler, Andrea Lindmayr-Brandl, Agnese Pavanello, and Paul Kolb.

Abstract
Gaspar van Weerbeke, born around 1450 in the Flemish city of Oudenaarde, was one of the most acclaimed composers of the Josquin generation. Active primarily in Milan and Rome, he is known today as one of the few composers—along wiht Josquin, Compère, and Gaffurius—of motet cycles. This volume is the first containing his mass cylces, which represent a major portion of Weerbeke's surviving commpositional activity, for the first time available in a critical edition. The repertory bears witness to stylistic changes and preferences in mass composition occuring in the last quarter of the fifteenth century.

Gaspar van Weerbeke, born around 1450 in the Flemish city of Oudenaarde, was one of the most acclaimed composers of the Josquin generation. Active primarily in Milan and Rome, he is known today as one of the few composers—along with Josquin, Compère, and Gaffurius—of motet cycles. With this volume, his substantial output of conventional mass cycles is for the first time completely available in an edition. The repertory includes freely composed masses and missae breves, bearing witness to new trends in mass composition occuring in the last quarter of the fifteenth century.

Abstract
Gaspar van Weerbeke, born around 1450 in the Flemish city of Oudenaarde, was one of the most acclaimed composers of the Josquin generation. Active primarily in Milan and Rome, he is known today as one of the few composers—along with Josquin, Compère, and Gaffurius—of motet cycles. This volume contains Weerbeke's contributions to this particular repertory, including the Marian cycles also known as “motetti missales,” meant to be performed during the mass. These motet cycles are relevant for understanding more about the use and performance context of motets as well as their combination into larger musical units intended to enrich liturgical and devotional services.

Abstract
Gaspar van Weerbeke, born around 1450 in the Flemish city of Oudenaarde, was one of the most acclaimed composers of the Josquin generation. Active primarily in Milan and Rome, he is known today as one of the few composers—along with Josquin, Compère, and Gaffurius—of motet cycles. This volume contains all known motets by the composer that are not transmitted in longer motet cycles. The repertory covers different styles (with or without ‘cantus prius factus’) and various types of sacred texts, some of which are related to specific liturgical functions. Here the composer reveals his mastery in exploring the possibilities of shaping short sacred works.

Abstract
Gaspar van Weerbeke, born around 1450 in the Flemish city of Oudenaarde, was one of the most acclaimed composers of the Josquin generation, active primarily in Milan and Rome. This volume contains the composer’s two main settings of liturgical texts, other than the masses, his Lamentatio Jeremie prophete and Magnificat octavi toni, as well as the six songs and instrumental wrks that bear an attributin to the composer. Conflicting and uncertain attributions raise questions about the authorship of these songs, and arguments in favor of an against Weerbeke are discussed in the introduction and individual work commentaries. The appendices contain the surviving tablature versons of these songs, a further opus dubium, and a related song.
