Both vols. corners and spine-ends dam./ worn; frontcover of second vol. loose and stained in upper left corner.

= RISM 1595a L1009 (no complete copies listed). Written for 7 voices (S.I, S.II, A.I, A.II, T.I, T.II and B), these sacred madrigals are considered by many to form the pinnacle of the sacred madrigal literature of the 16th century. It was the last work written by Di Lasso (he died three weeks after having dedicated the work to Pope Clement VIII) and is remarkable for putting across the deeply felt meaning of the inescapable conclusion of his life. The 20 poems of which the cycle of madrigals consist were written by Luigi Tansillo in a more or less similar vein of searching for the spiritual meaning of life and were first partly published in 1585. A. Einstein, in his The Italian Madrigal calls the Lagrime "(...) a spiritual counterpart to the cycles from the great epics of Ariosto and Tasso, an old man's work, comparable in its artistry, its dimensions, its asceticism only to the Musical Offering and the Art of Fugue." Sixteenth century (parts of) vocal scores are very rare, no copies of any of the voices of the Lagrime were offered by auction in the past decades (ABPC 1972-2019 and JAP 1990-2018). SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CXLVI.
