AND Early Music Now (EMN 19-21): Ockeghem's Missa Prolationum

The Missa Prolationum by Johannes Ockeghem is an amazing feat of contrapuntal virtuosity: he created it entirely out of mensural canons. Far from sounding like a dry compositional exercise, it's also gorgeous to listen to! We'll hear a performance by the Hilliard Ensemble. Chansons like Ma bouche rit and motets like Alma redemptoris mater complete the episode.
