Although the Binchois's song De plus en plus appears in many recordings, this seems to be the first recording of this Ockeghem mass.
Together with this delicate & elaborate cantus firmus mass on the Binchois chanson, the program includes a very nice independent Credo of Ockeghem, as well as the final motet with preliminary attribution. I find the latter to be believeable. The other composers represented are Jacobus Barbireau (d.1491), and Matthaeus Pipelare.
