Of Mathieu Gascongne’s Missa “Mijn herte”

gascogne-kyrieDuring my Master’s Degree, as an exercise for one of the seminars, I transcribed the Kyrie from Mathieu Gascongne’s Missa “Mijn herte”, which is a parody mass on Pierre de La Rue’s chanson of the same incipit. I really enjoyed the exercise: the source used was the beautiful Occo Codex, probably one of the finest examples of Petrus Alamire’s craftsmanship. At the time I though “well this is a wonderful work, it should be recorded”. By that time I didn’t know that Capilla Flamenca had already recorded it, as many of the Flemish musical treasures.
