by Blue Heron



This track include two excerpts. The first is from the Binchois song De plus en plus; the second is from Ockeghem’s Missa De plus en plus.
De plus en plus features singer Martin Near.


De plus en plus se renouvelle,
Ma doulce dame gente et belle,
Ma volenté de vous veir.
Ce me fait le tres grant desir
Que j’ay de vous ouir nouvelle.

More and more is renewed—
my sweet lady, noble and fair—
my urge to see you:
this creates in me the very strong desire
I have to hear news of you.

Translation by Scott Metcalfe

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis.

Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.


Recorded live in concert First Church in Cambridge, Congregational, March 3, 2013. Engineer: Philip H. Davis, Cape Ann Recording, Essex MA.
