Information from owned CD.
This mass is only attributed to Dufay, although we know that he composed such a mass (the manuscript, contained in his will, has not survived).
He also wrote another mass in honour of St Anthony "Mass for St Anthony of Padua" (already recorded by The Binchois Consort: Hyperion CDA 66854). It was found in one of the Trent manuscripts, but this anonymous mass, in honour of St Anthony "of Vienne" or "of the Viennois" was found in another Trent manuscript, and bears a stylistic resemblance to Dufay's other works.
I was not able to find trace of a previous recording of this mass.
The final track is Binchois' only surviving isorhythmic motet, partially reconstructed for this recording.
