Overview

Josquin: Missa Malheur Me Bat, Fortuna Desperata

It has recently become a favorite intellectual game to compare Josquin’s career with that of Beethoven.

These Mass settings are two of the finest to come from any pen. The Tallis Scholars have been performing the music of Josquin regularly in concert for over twenty years. Their 1986 CD of his music remains the only recording of early music to have won the Gramophone Record of the Year Award. This new release is the latest in The Tallis Scholars’ projected complete Josquin Mass cycle. From the Label
