Josquin: Messes de l'Homme armé

Josquin: Messes de l'Homme armé
Métamorphoses - Maurice Bourbon
Calliope 9441

This is some of Josquin's most famous music, and the paired settings make for ready points of comparison. The Missa L'homme armé sexti toni is the more polished & sophisticated in this sense, but the Missa L'homme armé super voces musicales is more of a technical tour de force.

This is one of those interpretations that, relatively speaking, I was enthusiastic about when it appeared. But now it seems dated, and there are some better performances, but not of this specific music.

I suppose there will be another generation of interpretations soon.
