Edition notes: This is taken from the Petrucci edition of 1505, "Liber Missarum Josquin." It is not transposed; the meter of the original score is interpreted so that measure numbers match up with the New Josquin Edition. Suggested musica ficta alterations have been added following Renaissance practices described in Anthony Newcomb's article "Unnotated Accidentals in the Music of the Post-Josquin Generation," Toft's Aural Images of Lost Traditions, and others.

General Information

Title: Missa "D'ung aultre amer"
Composer: Josquin des Prez

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: ATTB
Genre: SacredMass

Languages: Greek, Latin
Instruments: A cappella

Published: 1505

Description: The mass is based on a chanson by Johannes Ockeghem, Josquin's teacher. Its attribution to Josquin has been questioned but seems as reliable as we can expect; the New Josquin Edition regards it as Josquin's work, at any rate. It is notable for a couple of things: its brevity – the longest movement takes no more than five minutes, and the whole mass can be performed in fifteen – and the substitution of the motet Tu solus qui facis mirabilium for the Benedictus.
