Features the obscure Barbingant (fl.c.1440-1460), in a prefiguration of the parody mass (on his own chanson Terriblement suis Fortunée), along with another reading of what has become the most recorded mass by Tinctoris (c.1435-1511), both works in three parts....

Barbingant was once (in 20th century scholarship) confused with Barbireau.... Prior recordings including other music by Barbingant:
