Brussels 5557 / The Clerks' Group
FRYE. Missa Flos regalis · PLUMMER. Missa Sine nomine


"The present program features a couple of (uncharacteristically) attributed English cantus firmus masses of the period, both taken from the first section of the Brussels 5557 manuscript. It is argued that they were copied there in 1468, although the music is from a decade or so earlier."
