Information from owned CD. The Ockeghem mass is only instrumental. The CD cover illustration from "Le plaisir" by Magritte is the most sinister I have ever seen for a CD (The picture of a woman, in a dress spattered with blood, eating what appears to be a live bird). The liners too are quite bizarre with rather aggressive comments such as "Religion is horror and delight. Do you think the war in former Yugoslavia is the last? Do you think you won't use your fly-swatter next summer? Do you think that in buying this CD you are designing your own auditive decorum? Do you think the Big Mac's only purpose is to maintain your metabolisme?". An unorthodox product but very palatable.
