Comments:
Information from owned CDs. Reference to the LP appears in the backcover of the Danacord CD Box. The backcover of the box (Danacord) is rather obscure stating that tracks [1]-[3] were recorded at the same time as Josquin's motets, but the inner booklet leads us to believe that Victoria's section has been all recorded in 1987! Also the playing time of the Danacord (34' 23") for these LP excerpts leads me to believe that it contained more than 9 tracks; other tracks being probably from the Kontrapunkt release recorded also in 1984.
