This program features pieces once thought to be by Josquin, and now attributed elsewhere or disputed. Alongside these are placed relatively certain Josquin attributions, as well as certain attributions to other composers of the era. The goal is to place Josquin's individuality in perspective.

Besides composers such as Willaert and the relatively obscure Forestier who possess dedicated recordings, otherwise unknown composers included here are Nicolaes Craen (fl.c.1500), Nicolas Champion (fl.1526), and Noel Bauldeweyn (c.1480-1530).
