 General Description:

Dufay - Mass for St. Anthony Abbot
Binchois - Motets, Mass Movements

The Binchois Consort, Andrew Kirkman

The Binchois Consort and Andrew Kirkman are now recognized as being among the foremost interpreters of music by the father of polyphony, Guillaume Dufay..  Their recordings of the Missa Puisque je vis and Music for St Anthony of Padua were warmly received around the world, and the program Music for St James the Greater won a Gramophone award.  This new disc addresses the second of Dufay's 'Anthony' masses, the one in honor of St Anthony Abbot.  This is thought to be the long-lost, long-sought, work known to have been bequeathed by Dufay to the great cathedral at Cambrai, always his spiritual home however far afield his astonishing international career took him.  Alongside Dufay's masterpiece, this disc offers three mass movements and two motets by Dufay's great contemporary Gilles Binchois.  Primarily known as a composer of secular songs, Binchois' large corpus of sacred music is gradually being unearthed - and meeting with the approbation it surely deserves.  The eponymous composer would surely be grateful for these new performances.
