Mathurin Forestier: Missa Baises moy; Missa L’homme arme

Chicago a cappella presents the debut recordings of two mass settings by the neglected French Renaissance composer Mathurin Forestier (fl. c. 1500) as well as the Josquin chanson on which one is based.  The recording received glowing reviews and will be prized by lovers of Renaissance vocal music.

"...the performances on this disc are attention-getting. The nine voices that make up the group display all the professional attributes of world-class ensembles....This is an unexpected find, and I urge collectors to search it out."
