Notes & Reviews:

"Originally released in 1993, this exceptional recording of Johannes Ockeghem's Requiem has been reissued in Harmonia Mundi's Musique d'abord line with a change of packaging and a reduction of price. This Requiem is a beautiful example of the plainchant mass and is the earliest surviving polyphonic Mass for the Dead... ensemble Organum's male voices blend well, are flexible, and make the contrapuntal lines quite transparent. In the Sanctus, they are joined by three members of Les Pages de la Chapelle, whose voices add a bright luster to the otherwise somber coloration of this work." -All Music
