Books About Music
Ockeghem's Missa cuiusvis toni, in its Original Notation and Edited in All the Modes (Publications of the Early Music Institute). Johannes Ockeghem with Introduction by George Houle. Indiana University Press . 1992. ISBN 0253328543 (paperback).
This is the first comprehensive edition of Ockeghem's "Mass in Any Mode," which has fascinated musicians, historians, and theorists since the fifteenth century. Missa cuiusvis toni offers singers brilliant counterpoint, a masterful exercise in solmization, and experience in musica ficta. The singers' parts appear in mensural notation, but Houle also provides full scores and parts in modern notation for the Phrygian, Mixolydian, Lydian, and Dorian modes.
