, -[9?] Gaudeamus CD GAU 361 [CD] The Essential Josquin des Prez - Sublime Renaissance Choral Music
Fanfare (Vol./#-p.): 25/2- (Nov/Dec 2001)
An interesting program focusing on representations of the goddess Fortuna in music (unfortunately lacking the Fortuna dun gran tempo attributed to Josquin). This appears to be the first recording of Greiter's famous modulating song.
Track #1 sets the three verses of the chanson to three versions of the music: ? Busnois' original, an added contratenor by Josquin, and an added anonymous contratenor.
Other discs featuring sets of "Fortuna desperata" compositions:
