The publication of these 52 motets in two volumes helps to complete our picture of the voluminous musical legacy of Flemish composer Heinrich Isaac (1450-1517). Many of these works are published here in modern notation for the first time. Although these motets are not commonly known today, they were widely circulated in Isaac’s time. Some appeared in editions printed by Petrucci as early as 1506, and others appeared in volumes printed by Rhao, Petreius, and Montanus & Nauber. Some of these motets only appeared in manuscripts such as Berlin MS 40021 or the Regensburg collection of manuscripts from 1570-80. Under the supervision of Isaac’s student Ludwig Senfl, many of these motets were copied or printed well into the sixteenth century.
Although Isaac is perhaps best known for his monumental collection of Mass Ordinary and Proper motets, the Choralis Constantinus, these isolated motets, although fewer in number, are no less important in allowing us to view and judge his compositional mastery. Their texts range from the strictly liturgical to the spiritual Leise to Latin aphoristic poems in hexameter. This diversity points to their wide use both within and outside of the traditional liturgy. As such, they provide us with a much broader view of Isaac’s musical world.
