Johannes Tinctoris (c.1435-c.1511) was one of the most important theoretical figures of the early Renaissance, and a fine composer besides.

In addition to his didactic citations, Tinctoris surviving output consists of four masses (the two here, plus two more Sine nomine masses, one incomplete), four motets and nine secular pieces. The Missa L'homme armé includes troped texts.
