The Tallis Scholars's acclaimed series of recordings of the Masses of Josquin reaches Volume 8. Featuring what may be the last Mass the composer wrote, along with a Mass not by Josquin but once thought to have been by him, this penultimate volume certainly raises some fascinating questions! To discuss them, the Tallis Scholars's founder and director Peter Phillips joins Editor Martin Cullingford on this week's Gramophone podcast - which features excerpts from the album, available now on Gimell, and which has been named an Editor's Choice in the November issue of the magazine.
