The profoundly beautiful Requiem by Johannes Ockeghem may have been composed to commemorate the death of a French king. We'll hear a performance by Cappella Pratensis, which was recently included in Gramophone's list of Top Choice classical recordings. We'll also hear some of Ockeghem's songs performed by the Boston-based ensemble Blue Heron.
