Ores que je suis dispos
Roland de Lassus
Livre de chansons nouvelles … , 1571
A lovely 5-part drinking song from Lassus. Lots of lively and bibulous repetition, overlapping voices, little melodic fragments jumping from voice to voice… All very nicely done.
The only recording I can find is rather an old one, but I’ve selected one of the livelier parts – approximately pages 3-4 of the score here.
