Pierre de la Rue, born around 1460, was a contemporary of Josquin Desprez and was nearly as highly regarded as that master in his own time. This disc presents one of his greatest works, a Requiem mass that was widely circulated and copied in the early sixteenth century, together with a Missa de beata virgine cut from similar cloth

Pierre de la Rue's 'Missa pro defunctis' is one of the earliest polyphonic settings of the requiem and became the best-known work of this genre during the Renaissance. The impressively low range of parts of the Mass vividly represents the position of the sinner knocking at heaven's gate. Alongside this is la Rue's 'Missa de Beata Virgine', in which the missing Proprium parts of the Mass have been completed by Gregorian chant from a manuscript of St. Thomas's Church in Leipzig.

The Missa de Beata Virgine is a musical setting of the Ordinary of the Mass, by Renaissance composer Josquin des Prez. A late work, probably composed or assembled around 1510, it was the most popular of his masses in the 16th century. The Missa de Beata Virgine is unusual among Josquin's masses in that the first two movements are for four voices, and the last three for five, with the fifth voice derived canonically.
