Born in 1493 or 1494, Lupus Hellinck became a chorister at St Donatien, Bruges in 1506. In about 1515 he joined the household of the music-loving pope Leo X in Rome; he may also have spent some time in Ferrara, and he returned to Bruges as an adult singer around 1519. His Easter Mass Surrexit pastor bonus is based on a motet by Andreas de Silva, one of his colleagues in Pope Leo’s household. How this Mass found its way into a set of partbooks compiled for Canterbury Cathedral at the beginning of the 1540s is a mystery, but it was evidently copied from a manuscript exemplar no longer extant. Its presence in an English source may have influenced the stylistic development of English church music that took place in the later 1530s and 40s. This edition contains two copies of the music: one at the original written pitch for ease of comparison with the motet from which it is derived (also included in the volume); and one transposed down a minor third for performance. For five voices: AATBarB. xxiv + 80 pages. ISMN 979-0-57039-177-6.
