With the Missa cuiusvis toni, Ockeghem achieves a veritable tour de force: a work having the particularity of being able to be executed in all the Church modes. In an era when composers vied with each other in virtuosity, this Mass 'in whatever tone' became an unsurpassable model of which the ensemble Musica Nova recreates the four versions here for the first time on disc. In addition to the undeniable beauties of this music, one will not tire of the subtlety of the 'colours' of each mode thus performed.
