First Church in Cambridge, Congregational
11 Garden Street (Next to the Sheraton Commander)

The fifth installment of the complete works of Johannes Ockeghem, featuring one of the composer’s earliest masses, inspired by an anonymous English mass on the same plainchant melody, but utterly transformed by the Flemish genius. The program will include a movement from the English Missa Caput and other music by mid 15th-century English composers such as Robert Morton and Walter Frye. This program will also be offered on February 17 in Lexington.
