This is the first program devoted entirely to Johannes Regis (c.1430-1496). Regis may have been Dufay's secretary.

Although it is not the title, the Missa Dum Sacrum Mysterium actually features the l'homme armé tune as its main theme. Other liturgical texts are set to this theme. Regis also conspicuously uses the chant Ne timeas Maria in his other mass setting, among other tunes. Both are in four parts.
