More Info:

We know little about Pierre de Manchicourt's biography and recordings of his music are rare. "beauty farm" takes up the cudgels for this Franco-Flemish master of the Renaissance, who is probably only known to insiders. The album "Manchicourt - Masses" sheds a representative light on the sacred music of the composer, who worked as Kapellmeister to Philip II in Madrid in the last years of his life. Four masses - including the first recording of the "Missa de Domina" - show that Manchicourt was one of the grand masters of vocal polyphony.
