This Missa De beata Virgine dates from c.1430 and shows something of a summation for the three-voice counterpoint of the time. Unusually, it is based largely on a cantus firmus in the top voice, with the harmonic setting altered by the surrounding voice. The setting is completely polyphonic for both Ordinary & Propers.
Nothing is known of Reginaldus Liebert aside from his existence at Cambrai in 1424, and this surviving mass along with a Kyrie (track #13) and two chansons.
