Super voces musicales and the L’homme armé Tradition

Super voces musicales and the L’homme armé Tradition

(p.233) Chapter six Super voces musicales and the L’homme armé Tradition
Josquin's Rome


Oxford University Press

Famous for its culture of compositional one-upmanship, the L’homme armé tradition reached an apex toward the end of the 15th century. Chapter 6 turns a microscope on Josquin’s Missa L’homme armé super voces musicales, possibly the most famous L’homme armé mass ever composed, in order to uncover points of connection with other settings. It argues that the extraordinary technical complexity that underpins Josquin’s mass has its roots in the music of Du Fay, Busnoys, de Orto, and, above all, Ockeghem, to whom Josquin’s setting can be read as both an homage and a competitive response.

Keywords:   L’homme armé, Josquin des Prez, Johannes Ockeghem, Guillaume Du Fay, Antoine Busnoys, Marbrianus de Orto, musical borrowing
