About

This 4th volume in the series covers the last period of Lassusís prodigious activity, whilst choirmaster of Albert V Duke of Bavaria. It begins with Albertís death in 1579 and thus the crowning of his son William, and ends with the composerís death in 1594.

Old age and disease have barely interrupted a long list of masterpieces. This collection is completed by the motet Musica Dei donum optimi (an exception made to the principle of unreleased works of this biography), published the year of Lassusís death, and a splendid tribute to the music that governed with such power and variety.
