A striking number of his works have been published as printed editions early on, for instance in 1590, when he only was aged 24, the "Canzonette a quatro voci" in Nuremberg and one year later in Augsburg the "Cantiones sacrae", where among others the motets Dixit Maria and Beata es virgo Maria as well as the Magnificat octavi toni have first been released. In his Missa octo vocum, the mass for eight-part double choir, Hassler follows the sequence of the Catholic mass with it's six parts that comprise it's ordinary: Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus, and Agnus Dei. The Ensemble Vox Archangeli is directed by bassist Manuel Schuen, who is also performing on the Sieber-organ at St. Michael's Church in Vienna.
