The melody L’homme armé was a popular one at the time, and countless composers used it as a basis for the composition of a new mass. In his Missa L’homme armé sexti toni, Josquin demonstrates the range of techniques you can use to transform the melody into a complex, polyphonic work. Vox Luminis, masters of the interpretation of Baroque repertoire, explore the world of Franco-Flemish polyphony with their artistic leader Lionel Meunier. Their interpretation of Renaissance music promises to be every bit as good. “The refinement of Vox Luminis is never anything less than sublime”, enthuses Gramophone (UK). We entirely agree.
J. des Prez: Tu lumen tu splendor Patris, Tu solus qui facis mirabilia, Domine non secundum peccata, Usquequo Domine oblivisceris me, Missa L’homme armé sexti toni
