Orlando di Lasso: Der Wein der schmeckt mir also wol#
Orlando di Lassos (ca 1532 Mons -
1594 Munich) German song for five voices Der Wein der schmeckt mir
also wol was first printed in Munich in 1567. Michael Holzpecher
engraved it in a stone tabletop in 1589 (Picture). The
Bavarian-Austrian double coat of arms between the lines of music is a
reference to Archduchess Maria, the consort of Archduke Charles II of
Inner Austria/Graz, who came from Munich. Orlando di Lasso was employed
in Munich by Maria's father Duke Albert of Bavaria, which explains his
presence along with the musicians of the imperial court chapel and
those of the bridegroom at Maria's wedding to Archduke Charles in
Vienna in 1571. (E. Stadler)
