Composer: Orlando di Lasso

First published: 1575 in Patrocinium musices passio quarta pars, no.  

Description: The passion follows the traditional Latin text of the Palm Sunday Mass. There are traditionally the following actors:

  • The Evangelist (the storyteller), here singing the plain chant lines indicated by the initial capital C. The C stands for Chronista, but also for the recitation note C.
  • Jesus, here singing the plain chant lines indicated by the initial F. This refers also to his recitation tone, but also in a stylized version stands for a crucifix.
  • Soliloquents: solospeakers, such as Peter, Judas, Caiphas, Pilate. Sung by the choir in two- or three part polyphonic settings
  • Turbae: the multitudes, such as the disciples, priests, soldiers, the people. Sung by the choir in five- or six part polyphonic settings.

The complete score has been arbitrarily divided into three partitions, to avoid overloaded size of files.
