Notes & Reviews:

The Missa Pange Lingua is probably the most famous work written by Josquin des Prez and is generally thought to be his last mass. Rather than being a summation of his previous compositional techniques, Josquin's mass synthesizes several contrapuntal trends from the late 15th and early 16th centuries into a new style that would become the predominant compositional technique used by Franco-Flemish composers in the first half of the 16th century. On this classic Hyperion recording, the Choir of Westminster Cathedral is led by James O'Donnell.
