Yet another Ave Verum Corpus:

Free pdf edition of Parts I-II of Josquin’s five part “Ave verum corpus” now available from my Hartenshield Music website. In my opinion, this setting is better than the very good Mozart and Byrd settings, and completely within the capabilities of a good amateur choir.

(Another version, with old notation, is available from, by C. H. Giffen, and I consulted his edition a great deal.)

I tried to explain as clearly as possible the intonation markings used, in an appendix, and footnoted places where the intonation implied musica ficta.

Anyone that tries this with their choir, I’d love to hear about it!
