This is the third and last setting of Lessons by Lassus, all in four parts, published in Munich in 1582. It is the second of the Lessons to set texts from Job. The most obvious continuation of his style in this area is in the 4- & 5- voice Lamentation settings of 1588 and 1585 respectively. 1582 was also the year in which Lassus wrote the last two of four Passions, so it was clearly a significant year for the direction of his liturgical output. None of these works was included in early studies of Lassus, and consequently this entire segment of his vast output has been relatively neglected.
