The Gloria of the anonymous Thomas cesus mass from an Italian manuscript (San Pietro B80). This is a mass for the feast of St Thomas Becket which takes a section of the plainchant ‘Mundi florem’, the seventh responsory for Matins for that feast in the Sarum Rite, as its cantus firmus. In this performance, the chant is performed in its entirety before the mass movement. Performed at St Mary’s Guildhall, Coventry by The Binchois Consort under Andrew Kirkman. Edition by James Cook.
