Galli seems to have been only a moderately active composer: unlike more prolific contemporaries such as Clemens non Papa he left only three Mass settings, about twenty motets and a few chansons (Clemens’s output was of the order of ten times that amount). His Mass settings all appear to use ‘parody’ or ‘imitation’ technique, where a polyphonic model is taken as a compositional starting point: apart from Missa Ascendetis post filium, the models were Jacquet of Mantua’s famous and often-parodied motet Aspice Domine, and an unknown setting of Stetit Iacob.
