The Missa L'homme armé super voces musicales is the first of two settings of the Ordinary of the Mass by Josquin des Prez using the famous L'homme armé tune as their cantus firmus source material (for the other, presumed later, setting see Missa L'homme armé sexti toni). The setting is for four voices.

Josquin is widely considered by music scholars to be the first master of the high Renaissance style of polyphonic vocal music that was emerging during his lifetime. During the 16th century, Josquin gradually acquired the reputation as the greatest composer of the age, his mastery of technique and expression universally imitated and admired. Josquin wrote both sacred and secular music, and in all of the significant vocal forms of the age, including masses, motets, chansons and frottole. During the 16th century, he was praised for both his supreme melodic gift and his use of ingenious technical devices.

The Tallis Scholars sing his music magnificently and these discs are unsurpassed by anything in the catalogue. It contains the two masses Josquin based on the chanson L'Homme Arme, and it has been one of my Desert Island Discs ever since I bought it in 1989. The whole thing is simply sublime, and the third Agnus Dei in the second mass is, to me, three minutes of what Heaven sounds like. You cannot go wrong with this set.
