In a composite manuscript ascribed to the Burgundian court, a mass each by Richard Cox and John Plummer, with three such works by Walter Frye, survive alongside a pair of Dufay masses and all but one of the surviving motets of Busnois. The strong political and cultural association between England and Burgundy at the time explains their presence, as does the varied and masterful style – held in high regard by continental contemporaries.
