Giovanni Bassano (c.1558-1617) is presently best-known for his short 3-voice fantasias for brass instruments, but also wrote a substantial volume of choral music. In fact, all of his other works, aside from the 1585 instrumental publication (possibly written with the cooperation of the famous theorist, Gioseffo Zarlino), are vocal.
