Description

“ . . . one of those rare publications which succeeds equally as a scholarly edition for study and as a practical edition for performance.” —Musick

“ . . . a clear, easily grasped transcription of this work, suitable for performance or study.” —Notes

“ . . . a clear rendition of the original notation into its modern counterpart. . . . Houle has produced an edition that is a model of scholarship and performance clarity and is of value to any musician, scholar or performer, who wishes to acquire familiarity and experience with 15th-century contrapuntal style.” —American Recorder

This is the first comprehensive edition of Ockeghem’s “mass in any mode,” which has fascinated musicians, historians, and theorists since the fifteenth century. Missa cuiusvis toni offers singers brilliant counterpoint, a masterful exercise in solmization, and experience in musica ficta. The singers’ parts appear in mensural notation, but Houle also provides full scores and parts in modern notation for the Phrygian, Mixolydian, Lydian, and Dorian modes.
