Composed by: Hans Leo Hassler

Hans Leo Hassler is familiar to most through his madrigals. Yet he also composed sacred works, chief among them his settings of the Mass. These settings play a vital role in today’s church music heritage – for example at Mainz Cathedral: traditionally, Hassler’s works are performed across a range of ensembles; the present disc gives testimony to this variety. Domkapellmeister Karsten Storck performs the ‘Missa super Maria dixit’ and the eponymous motet, as well as the Missae ‘Come fugier’ and other pieces, together with the Mainzer Domchor, the Domkantorei St Martin and the Mainzer Dombläser.
