The second part of this program is a rare example of plainchant written by a well-known Renaissance (or more recent) composer. The discovery of this body of work puts the simple 3-part hymns (tracks #2 & #3) for which Dufay has long been known into sharper perspective. Also included is a polyphonic Magnificat (track #13) in hymn style, and of course the two famous isorhythmic motets (tracks #1 & #4).
