Ensemble Musica Nova seem to be a bit hit-and miss. I really wasn't overly enamoured with their Machaut recordings (the snail-paced In Memoriam: Messe De Notre-Dame and the rather muddled programme of Les Motets), but rather enjoyed their Ockeghem Missa Cuiusvis Toni.

They're not exactly making life easy for themselves in their choice of Ockeghem, picking his more complex and cerebral works which have given Ockeghem an unjust reputation as a creator of compositions with more of a theoretical interest than being enjoyable to listen to - first that Missa Cuiusvis Toni, constructed to be sung in four different modes, and now the Missa Prolationum, effectively an exercise in "mensuration canons", whereby singers may start simultaneously singing the same part at different speeds before arriving at a fixed distance. All this while creating counterpoint and employing all possible intervals throughout.

Unlike the majority of masses of the time, Missa Prolationum is not based on a pre-existing work, the melody being created de novo as a solution to this theoretical problem. To be fair, it's a somewhat difficult, if not impossible, piece to make as entertaining as many other contemporary works, and few have succeeded if at all. Despite their usual quality, the Hilliard Ensemble's recording of it left me somewhat unmoved, as did that of Bo Holten's ensemble Musica Ficta.
