Description:
Josquin was prolific not only in sacred music (nearly 20 masses and 60 motets) but also in chansons (more than 60). Of the chansons there are two very important ones: Mille regretz, which was the basis for the Missa Mille Regretz, a parody mass by Cristóbal de Morales, and Faulte d’argent which provided the cantus firmus in the Requiem by Jean Richafort. In the the Kyrie of the underlying Missa Faisant Regretz one can hear a reference to the Gregorian eleventh mass (Orbis factor).
