Title: Missa In minen sin (variations In myne zyn, In mynen zyn)
Composer: Alexander Agricola
Description: This mass setting — one of eight surviving settings by Agricola — is based on his own three-part chanson In myne zyn. Agricola makes widespread use of complex polyrhythmic structures, perhaps the most extraordinary of which is the Bassus part in Agnus Dei III, which opens with a sequence based on a five-and-a-half-breve rhythm (alternating maxima and dotted-breve notes), followed by a similar sequence based on a three-and-a-half breve rhythm (alternating long and dotted-breve notes) against a dotted triple-time ornamentation in each of the other three voices.
