The Missa "Chascun me crie... même Hercule!" was written by Maurice Bourbon based on Josquin's Credo "Chascun me crie" and themes from the Hercules mass and elsewhere. Although he states it is in the Franco-Flemish style of the period, I do not think anyone would mistake this music as by Josquin or his contemporaries.
The release of this recording was the first that informed me of three other recordings of Josquin masses by Maurice Bourbon. I do not know why these were never drawn to my attention before. They were not released in the United States, but then, many of the recordings here were not, and I am usually informed. So this is a curious situation. Anyway, this recording states it is the 5th in a planned series of 10. (The 3rd in this series was the other I had known about.) The rest:
