Notes & Reviews:

The most famous work of this 15th-century French polyphonist, the "Earthquake Mass" is named after a plainchant, but perhaps also refers to the nickname given to his formidable employer, the Duke Alfonso d'Este of Ferrara. Brumel's waves of immaculate multi-voice polyphony may impress us now, but the principal reason for the Mass's survival at all is the esteem in which it was evidently held in its day: Lassus evidently performed it several times at the Court in Munich.
