This complete edition of Gallus Dressler's Latin motets includes a modern transcription of eighty-three of the composer's works. In addition, it features a substantial introduction, based on the most recent research into Dressler's life and music. A detailed critical report shows relationship between the three major editions of Dressler's motets, dating from 1574, 1577 and 1585, and their derivation from Dressler's XC Cantiones Quatuor, Quinque et Plurimum Vocum (1570), as well as several other earlier publications and one manuscript source. The presentation of the Latin texts and their translation into English, plus the identification of the varied sources of the texts and their significance, forms a new contribution to research on Dressler that moves well beyond the partial identification of some of the composer's text sources in previous studies of the composer and his works.
