English composers in the first half of the 15th-century created the unified mass cycle, and even though most of the repertoire is anonymous, a distinctly ‘national’ style can be recognised. The four works in this volume were probably composed between 1420 and 1440, and each possesses a long, troped Kyrie of a kind not found in continental sources.
