About

The Tallis Scholars have been performing the music of Josquin regularly in concert for over 20 years. Their 1986 CD of his music remains the only recording of Early Music to have won the Gramophone Record of the Year Award.

This new release is the third CD in The Tallis Scholars’ project - the Complete Josquin Mass Cycle.

"This recording presents the only two Masses by Josquin which are entirely based on canons; a single melody stated in different voice-parts at different times so that it overlaps with itself. To write this kind of music may sound academic to the modern mind: who is interested in mathematical scaffolding which most people can’t hear? But Josquin was interested in it – as were many later composers from Bach to Brahms to Webern – and I knew that, like every composer of genius, he would relish the challenge." Peter Phillips
