Notes & Reviews:

This Requiem is known in five sources: two of them mention no composer, two attribute it to Antoine de Févin, and the Occo Codex attributes it to Antoine Divitis. The work is recorded here in the version transmitted by the Occo Codex, a sumptuous, richly illuminated 16th-century manuscript. Composed at the very end of the 15th century, shortly after Iohannes Ockeghem's setting, this Requiem presents a perfect synthesis of the plainchant tradition and the supreme technical skills of the Franco-Flemish polyphonists who diffused their art throughout Western Europe. The luminous work was discovered at the end of the 20th century, and has not yet received the full measure of attention it deserves.
